SPRING TIME BLUES

Hi all, today is the start of our challenge at
the theme is
STRIPES
For my DT card I have used one of my old stamps that I believe is a Whiff of Joy stamp, I have had her so long I have forgotten where I got her from.
I inked her up with Momento Tuxedo Ink and coloured with Graph It Markers, I mounted her onto blue textured card stock, the papers are from 
I have used the papers from this selection
Its Stripes
I printed off the darker and lighter shades of blue, both have been mounted onto the same card stock as the image,  the card is 12 x 12 so I actually made the card base as a 6 x 6 card.
I added some antique flower lace, crochet flowers then added some gold liquid pearls.  I went for a blue coloured theme that reminds me of Bluebells, my garden is full of them in the Spring, I keep pulling up the bulbs but they are still everywhere.
Nothing too fancy but I like it I hope you do too.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I really want to thank you so much for visiting my blog I hope you haven't faced too many hurdles to get here but if you have I hope it was worth it ( that is my little dig at Blogger and Google , lol)
I will see you all a little later, at the moment the sun is shining but boy is it flipping cold, I can't feel my fingers or toes so on goes the heating once again.
Take care and have a lovely day
hugs
