Add Spots or Stripes- The Flower Challenge

Good morning.
Time for another fun theme at 

We are being sponsored by Top Flight Stamps this month. They are kindly giving our winner an e-gift card for $25. Please check out there website as they have some amazing crafty things there.  
Our guest this month is Tracy from whoistracy.

Here are my card details.

I began by placing this small circle stencil called Pick up eh?  It's a smaller stencil so no need to mask the areas around.
Using some Carved Pumpkin DOX ink, I rubbed the center of the stencil then added some Candied Apple around the edges.  I removed the stencil and placed the piece into my Misti to stamp the flowers and this great sentiment from STAMPlorations.
To help pull the whole design together, I doodled in a line around the circle.
I simply mounted it onto a piece of orange cs then onto a heavy white card base.

Thanks so much for coming and taking a look.

Blast from the past with the pick up sticks Karen x I so like how you've used just part of the stencil and what fabulous colours. Striking design and the pop of black is stunning x.

This is such a fun and creative design, Karen. I LOVE that stencil ... especially done in the bright shades of orange. Fabulous with the large sentiment and silhouette flowers. The doodled border adds a special touch. xx
