Spots and Stripes at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges

Hi Folks
Hope you are well and having a good week.  We are very proud parents at the moment as our youngest daughter got her university degree results.  She passed with flying colours and got a 2:1.  She was only a few marks from getting a First but she is delighted.  Four years of hard work has paid off.  Now we can look forward to her graduation ceremony in a couple of weeks.  

Anyway, as it's Wednesday, it's time for a new challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.  Our theme for this week is:
Spots and Stripes

We have two great sponsors for this challenge:
Bugaboo - prize of 7 digi images of the winners choice
Stitchy Bear Stamps - prize of 3 digi images of the winners choice

For my inspiration project I used an image from Bugaboo.  I coloured the image with promarkers and cut it out using one of my dies.  I then decided to make a gatefold Barbecue Invitation.  The paper was from my stash box (magazine freebie I think).  I added some ribbon across the centre to tie the invite up before sending.  The flower is a material one and is from Papermania.

I left the inside blank at the moment as not sure when we are going to get decent enough weather to have a barbecue lol.  

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all you creations.  Just pop over to Penny's to see more fabulous inspiration from the design team.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Disdigidesigns - Show us summer fun
QKR Stampede - Anything goes
Jellypark - Summer
Sweet Stampin - Not cute
OSAAT - Anything goes
The Scrapbooking Queen - Anything goes
Artistic Inspirations - Anything goes
Papertake - Anything goes

Crafty Cardmakers - Holiday
