Just For You

*2nd post of the day please scroll down*

As this Bank Holiday has mostly been wet I decided to go for Summer colours for my card and knew which little sweetie I wanted to use.

There were a couple of Challenges that I had in mind when I made this card and I really should be using these more as I have so many of their stamps!

I used some of my favourite Martha Stewart punches and a Fiskars butterfly punch.

Papers are First Edition Spring Drop and the orange gingham ribbon is from a Challenge win. Have you guessed who is it yet?

Coloured with Promarkers
Star Dust Stickles
Memento Dewdrop Inks - Cantaloupe and Summer Sky
Pearls and Gems from Stash
Butterfly Sentiment from Craftwork Cards

Sorry if the pictures are dark it has been raining again!

I will be entering this card into the following challenges;

Sweet Stampin' Challenge - use your favourite stamp (couldn't narrow down to just one - it's one of my favourites)
Crazy 4 Challenges - Butterflies
Lili's Little Fairies - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Penny Black and More - Favourite Things (Ms punches, promarkers and nesties)
Make it Monday - Anything goes

Raining? On a Bank Holiday? There's a novelty - NOT!!!

Your card is lovely Debs and I wholeheartedly approve of the colour scheme you've picked too.

It's so dull and soggy here we've just booked a short break!

Happy Tuesday
