Shabby Birthday Wishes

So a new challenge started over at MAWTT on Thursday. I do like to try and play along with Team B's themes too, that way I can bring your attention to the challenge also, however this theme is not one of my strong points. So I have attempted, and this is what I did:

The image was a pre-coloured digital image from my House Mouse CD-Rom. Anybody that knows me would think this image is just perfect :D.

I simply cut the image around the printed border. I used a pale yellow card blank and stamped a patchwork square all over, using pretty colour rainbow ink, to give a shabby background - or I think it is anyway. I then stamped the flower from the same stamp set (free with a magazine) using black ink, and coloured them using watercolour pencils. I fussy cut the flowers, layered the image onto the card base, and then added a flower to each of the corners using glue dots.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Cute Card Thursday #569 Wings
Allsorts #507 Kitchen
Sweet Stampin' - Love Your Pet
Addicted to stamps #171 Anything but a square

I am hoping to get the base sorted for my patio this weekend, and the rubble put into the bottom ready for tamping down. Then I might actually be able to get onto my drive properly too. Only problem is I am on clay soil and so it needs to be dry to dig without getting mud stuck everywhere - and it has just started to drizzle!! Grrr.

Here is a picture of where I am at at the moment:
As you can see there is a lot of hardcore to get rid of and on the right hand side (just off the camera shot) is still some cement that I am trying to chip away at. It is taking a little bit of hard work lol. I think I may need a new spade by the time I am finished!

Anyway enjoy your weekend, whatever you are doing,
