Inkspirations Challenge #29

Yay for Fridays, it's the end of the week and there's a new challenge over at Inkspirations!
Today we have this fabulous sketch and the wonderful Cindy from Canada is hosting.  She's also added a twist to the challenge - you need to include something from your stash that you've been hoarding for a while!
And here's my creation based on the sketch:
This sweet image hadn't seen any ink yet; she is August from the Honey range of stamps by CC Designs.  Very cute and fun to colour in with Copic Markers!
The background paper is by October Afternoon - Thrift Shop - you will be seeing lots of this, the papers are just gorgeous. 
For the main image, I've coloured in and then also created the floorboards with my Copic Markers - I was inspired by Keesh's tutorial from last week.  I've cut this out then placed some patterned paper by Pink Paislee behind so as to create a wall-paper effect.  I've punched out circles from the red cardstock to create the scallop edge around the circle.
For something from my stash:  I have to admit that I have baskets and even more baskets of ribbon and lace - so I reached into one and found some pretty lace that needed some love.  I think it's perfect for this card!  The rub-on sentiment is also something I found hidden away.
Lastly, I made a paper flower from some of the pattern paper and SU puches, finished off with a brad.
Here's a closer look at the details:

I hope I've inspired you all to playing along for this week - you will need to link up your card over at Cindy's blog so we can all see what you've created.  I'm looking forward to checking them out, as it's my turn to pick some winners and a guest designer for the following week.
You will find lots of lovely inspiration by the Design Team too - you can check them out here:

Hi Chantelle,

lovely card. Your wallpaper and floor boards make a wonderful background for August, and the flower and lace are perfect finishing touches!
