Wot! No Stamping?

Here is my entry for Raise The Bar where the theme for their current challenge is 'no stamping' I feel a bit cheeky even entering this card into a challenge as it was so quick and easy to make, especially as I haven't 'raised the bar' with this card! The colours are so pretty and spring-like though, I thought it was worth a go.

The spotty paper was a mag freebie and the stripy paper is by Provocraft, both of which I've had lying around in my stash for ages. I used some pink adhesive ribbon over the join and added the flowers by Prima which have also been knocking around for a while. The sentiment is a rub-on. As I said in my previous post, I am trying to make cards that use up stuff that I have had for a while.

Thanks for taking a look.
