It's Sunday which means it's time for another challenge at Creative Inspirations and this time the theme is 'Summertime'. So what does summertime mean to you? A trip to the seaside, barbeques or maybe all the beautiful flowers. Let's see what it means to you!

We are kindly being sponsored by Little Claire Designs who has donated a great prize for one lucky winner. Don't forget to check out the DT's blogs for more inspiration.

In the summertime I like to see all the beautiful flowers in bloom, especially my roses, so I have used this gorgeous Tilda stamp which was in some blog candy I won recently. I have coloured her with promarkers and glitter and layered her with a Nesties label die. The doily is another Spellbinders die. The panel across the middle has been punched with a border punch and I have added ribbon and butterfly gems. The corners have also been punched and I have added flower gems to these. To finish off I added some paper flowers. Hope you like it, thanks for looking.
