Nothing but paper

Oh, help!  A challenge to make a card using nothing but paper, well I'm up for that.  The throw down was from Magnolia-licious Highlites, so I dug out my stamps and got creating using the Kathy's Waffle Sketch for August.
I went for some of the latest 'Winner takes it all' stamps, which I am so pleased I managed to get a set of.  Coloured with my trusty Copics in a yellow/orange and blue scheme.  I managed to find some old BasicGrey 6x6 papers to match in with the colours and used them to punch the accessories and line the inside of the card.  There's a little bit of glittering to finish the flower centres (as the rules said this was allowed and I couldn't find my one and only packet of CANDi, where have I put that?)
I'm always on the lookout for stamps to accompany Tilda and Edwin, little accessories that can be added to make a scene.  I bought the sheet of Boy stamps on Ebay (the same ones are here at Crafters Companion), I thought the dog and the car would look cute.  Well, I was very excited to see the new space range at Magnolia as I already had these stamps to compliment them.
Challenges:
Magnolia-licious Highlites - Nothing but paper
Kathy's Waffle - August Sketch
Just Magnolia #118 - Anything goes

Kate, this is a brilliant way to use the sketch - I just love everything about it! Especially the way he's "sitting" on the banner piece and the way you've used little spacey motifs where the sketch has flowers - it's inspired!
Thanks for using The Sketch File
