Here come summer

   There is a new challenge beginning today at Crafty Cardmakers the theme of which is here comes summer. When i think of summer I always think of a garden full of colourful flowers.
   I cut a rectangle from white card using a Tattered Lace pearl rectangle die and the cut a centre design from this using the tattered Lace Country Manor Alice die. After colouring it using Promarkers I attached it onto backing card taken from Tattered Lace's Country Manor paper pad using foam pads. The lady was cut using a die from Tattered Lace's Country Manor Ida set and coloured using Promarkers. I stuck scraps of paper behind the dress skirt and bonnet and then attached it to the card using glue gel. The embossed wishes was coloured using distress inks.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Ooh La La Creations - summertime
   Passion For Promarkers - add a sentiment
   Brown Sugar - anything goes
   Crafty Sentiments Designs - summer
   The Crafty Addicts - anything goes with summer colours
