Spots & Stripes @ Diva's

Good morning I'm back again with a DT card for a brand new challenge over at
and this week the lovely Rebekah has chosen

I have used a stamp I've had for a while and never got chance to play with before, its called Topsy Turvy Cake and is available Here in digital format, though mine is rubber from Whimsey
I coloured my star pins with Copic markers to match the Echo Park DP's and the sentiment was computer generated.

We have a fabulous sponsor

and all the details of this weeks prize can be found on the main challenge blog. While you're there check out the fabulous inspiration from the gorgeous Diva's - you won't be disappointed!
I've posted this off to a very sweet blog friend - I hope she has it before she sees this!

Thanks for visiting
Love 'n' Hugs Laurie

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
Craft Room Challenge - Orange, Brown & Cream
Bunny Zoe's - Celebration
Addicted To Stamps - Birthday Card With Dots
Totally Gorjuss - Yummy
