A Challenge - Merci!

Hello Blogger's,

Well it started a bit cooler here today..... ahead of another hot day tomorrow!
Yesterday I downloaded some digital paper from Pink Petticoat a fabulous on-line store in Cornwall, UK. 
I've been a frequent visitor but for the first time I actually made a purchase! 
Love all the paper they have but the download in my area is pretty slow and takes a huge part of my monthly download limit........Painful!
  They will make up CD's and DVD's for their UK customers only though, so am working on how I could make that work for me!

Inspired by the cream polka dot I  printed  onto some SU whisper white card I made the following card:

This card was made for the Flourish CAS challenge at SCS. This label is from an Inkadinkado Clear Stamps set I've owned for a while and never used!

Brenda's Clean and Simple Sunday Challenge #5 was the layout I used.

I cut some whisper white card using the PI for the curly shape.
Stamped the label and a sentiment (Waltzingmouse) in SU close to cocoa.
Then sponged with Versa Color sand beige.

Using strong tape I pleated some cream seam binding over the DP and the label sits over this popped up with foam dots.
To complete the card I added some AnnaBelle Stamps Sprinkles

OK off for a swim, the sun came out around lunch time and it's quite warm now.
Hope you're all ready for a relaxing week end.
See you soon.
