Summer day

   For our challenge this week at Creative Corner we would like you to use turquoise and brown.
   I wrapped turquoise ribbon round the lower part of  striped turquoise paper I had in my stash and then matted and layered it onto brown core'dinations cardstock and white card. The image is from The Paper Shelter and is called 'That's something you don't see everyday'. I coloured it using Promarkers, rounded the corners with a punch, matted it onto brown core'dinations cardstock and attached it to the card at an angle. I then added a turquoise bow.
   The letters were cut from brown core'dinations cardstock using the Tattered Lace elegant alphabet dies. Finally I added three dark brown card candi.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Whoopsi Daisy - make it girly
   Crafty Sentiments Designs - holidays
   Ribbon Girl - card with ribbon
   Crafty Girlz - anything goes with summer holidays
   Stamp and Create - one for the girls
