House Mouse chipboard challenge

This weeks challenge over at House Mouse & Friends is to use some chipboard. I thought I had loads of chipboard in my stash but it took me forever to find anything made from chipboard and even then it wasn't what I wanted. Oh well never mind at least I found something so I could join in the challenge.

I'm sorry this pic looks a bit washed out, I really need to figure out how to work my camera!!
This is one of the stamps I bought the other day, I know it's not one of the new HM stamps but I thought it was really cute and Rhianna is ballet daft so I had to get it. The ballerina paper was also Rhianna's doing, she choose it when I took her to the craft shop with me a few weeks ago and wouldn't let me leave without buying it, it a Karen Foster design. The other papers are Junkitz and American crafts.
I cut out the oval mat freehand with some fancy scissors and the chipboard bits on the corners were actually green and orange chipboard stickers but I ripped off the top layer and coloured them with a marker. The pearl brads are from Papermania, everything else from my stash.
Oh the ric rac was a bargain from John Lewis sold by the metre, it was reduced to 12p per metre, so I got loads of it!
Right I'm off now to clean up the mess I've made with all my papers n stuff. Thanks for stopping by. I am trying to get a blog candy together for when I reach 1000 hits so keep your eyes peeled, although it might take a while as I don't get that much visitors but hopefully it won't be too long.
