3 Challenges in one card.

Good morning everyone and hope you`re keeping warm and dry. Wet and windy here and the dog needed to go to the vets early this morning for his yearly jab. So we walked down the town inbetween showers and had a nice stroll back along the beach. He was such a good lad, laid down while we waited and sat still for the vet ( very proud). The boys also had a sleep over at nanny and grandads last night and just received a call to ask if they could sleep over tonight aswell. Well I couldn`t let this oppotunity pass me by, so I said yes. But no rest for the wicked, I still have to go shopping at some point and stock up, before the lads come back and raid the cupboards again!.
Anyway i`m entering this card into 3 challenges
1.winter wonderland christmas blog challenge-use colours satsuma, gold and chocolate.
2.sketch and stash challenge - use the sketch they`ve provided
3.lexis creations - Use spots or stripes.
The papers are some old K & Co papers that i`ve had for ages that came in a big box of 200. The image and sentiment stamp, i`m not sure where these are from as the makers name isn`t on the stamp now. The flowers I diecut and used brads for the middle.
The colours make for an unusual colour combo for christmas, makes me think of that famous chocolate orange ball, but they seem to work and it`s one less card to make for christmas.
