woo hoo!!! and a Sweet Pea card

The Christmas card I posted earlier today has won the grand prize over at Bugaboo stamps! I am so excited - isn't it lovely to win things. I think that is the fastest win I have ever had LOL!
This is a card I have made using a Sweet Pea stamp I won from Crafts and Me when they sponsored Crafty Catz. I have coloured it using promarkers. The backing paper (which is even more colourful and amazing in real life) is from the Laurence Llewellyn Bowen collection. I cut a corner from some purple mirri card and then decided that the negative it left behind looked rather nice too so that made it on to the card in the other corner.
I am entering it into the following challenges:-
Papertake Weekly - in the garden
Flutterby Wednesday - butterfly, fairy or angel and at least 3 layers
Playdate Cafe - purple, lilac and lime green
Stamp with Fun - fairies
Passion for promarkers - want to see an animal on the card
Totally Gorjuss - Thinking of you

Hi Lin, you could use the 'man with the umbrella' on men's cards and once you have it I'm sure you'd find other things to use it on. When I got it I went for the mini as I'd bought 3 of Tim's larger stamp sets and was trying to save a bit of money, but wish I'd got the bigger one of that particular stamp now.
