Summertime

My card today was made with three challenges in mind, all asking for Summertime themed cards. I used Janet Kruskamp collection by Joanna Sheen, Printing the main image onto Glossy photo paper and the matching backing paper onto ink jet paper. I mounted these onto gold mirri card and before putting the topper down onto the card base I added a doily cut using a Marianne die which was distressed using Distress ink pads. I then added some flowers made using a Tattered Lace die and coloured using distress inks. I added some stickles to the flower centres to finish. As yet there is no sentiment, I shall pop this into my ready box for when I need a card like this.



I'm entering this into the following challenges.
My Time To Craft ... Summertime
CD Sunday ... Sun/Sand/Sea (I have sun and sea in this)
Ooh La La ... Summertime

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

Such a tranquil scene Sue and would happily be there today rather than my sticky office. Pretty flowers in the soft pastel colours as well.

I wish I was sitting on that verandah right now instead of in my very warm conservatory. It is almost midnight and I have the fan going full blast but still melting.
A beautiful image Sue and thank you for sharing it with us.

Very pretty, such a lovely scene and made into a beautiful card. The glossy paper really makes a difference when printing some of the very detailed Joanna Sheen CDs doesn't it? Thanks for sharing at CD Sundays
