Simply Summer


Ooh La La (57) - Simply Summer
Digital Tuesday (65) - Summertime
Papertake - In Stitches
ABC - X is for Xtra Dimension
Simon Says - Check It Out
The Creative Cottage (17) - Summer Suprise
Dutch Dare (81) - Flower Inspiration Picture
M.A.W.T.T. (53) - Sketch
Digi Doodle (14) - Circles/Dots
Mami Doodles (6) - Blue/White/Green/Touch Of Red

Wow! I can't believe I managed to get 10 challenges out of one simple card!

Using the great sketch I lengthened it to make an A5 card. The base card is actually white with a blue piece on top that is attached with foam pads. I then added one of my favourite green check papers, can't remember where it came from though, sorry. The strip across the middle has been punched with a Fiskars border punch with ribbon and circle brads added. The freebie digi stamp has been coloured with Promarkers and decoupaged to add extra dimension. If you look closely you will see I added extra dots to the centre of the flower as it looked a bit too plain. I also did some faux stitching in each corner. After decoupaging the image I was left with a few extra leaves which I have added at the bottom. To finish the card I punched some butterflies, adding some Glamour Dust and placed these at the top. Hope you like it.
