You brighten my day

Good morning girls
I've good and bad new for you today. This will be our last challenge on Creative Cottage Challenges.  Tracey has made the difficult decision to close the challenge blog.  All is not lost though, she will continue to make her gorgeous papers and kits and the other DT girlies and me will still be making cards for her to show on her website AND instead of the weekly challenge we'll be doing monthly competition on the main blog. There is a catch though, now you will have to use one of Tracey's fab kits, not hard and I know loads of you already have them as she's very generous with her freebbies. At the end of the month a name will be drawn at random and the winner will receive two kits of their choice.  How good is that???
So, for our last challenge which was the lovely Mandi's choice.  I'll bet you can already guess her theme!  Yip, CAS, lots of white space.  So here's my effort.

As you can see I took her at her word lol.  I printed of some of the gorgeous flowers from the Birthday Wishes kit and using wet glue I adhered them to my cardstock then carefully cut around them to leave them hanging over the edge.  Only once I'd done this did it dawn on me that I should've just printed them straight onto me card (doh!).  The sentiment is from Sparkle n Sprinkle, stamped straight onto the card. A big dollop of stickles and a bead to the centre of each flower finished the card.
Tracey also has a gorgeous gingham paper set which she is giving away free to her followers this month, so don't forget to hop over and grab that too.  I promise you won't be disappointed, it's beautiful.
All that remains is for me to wish Tracey well with her decision. I hope you'll continue to buy her fab kits and visit us over on  the Creative Cottage blog  for the monthly comp or, if your looking for some fabulous papers then  Creative Cottage Crafts
