LOTV June card challenge

Hello lovely people,

The weekend is here!!

Yes, I know I'm still on a career break but I'm just excited on behalf of all you hard-working peeps out there!

And of course, I get to spend time with Dr. Hubby, so that's fab, although we don't really have plans for the weekend.

If you don't have plans then you could always join in with our LOTV June card challenge, which has the theme 'SPORTS.'

 You can find all the details on the Facebook page, including the 5 amazing prizes on offer and it runs until Weds 15th June so you still have time to join in the fun :-)

Here's what I came up with for my inspiration card for the challenge;

Little golf girl card (image from LOTV)

This is one of the Little Folk images, which are a little smaller than the regular images, so are super quick to colour but still a good enough size to make a great focal point for your design.

I bought a HUGE set of washi tape whilst in America; I had no idea what I wanted it for but I just couldn't resist the pretty colours - sound familiar?!

So for this card I tried using it to add detail to the top and bottom of the image and I like it :-)
