Summer Card Swap

Hi Crafters,

Just popping in today to share a card that I made for a swap on Facebook.
My lovely swap partner was Liz McGuire from Buttons for Brains and as she has now received this card I can post it here.


Recipe
Stamps and Dies Set - MFT Die-namics - Sunflower Sweetheart
Medium - Promarkers
Papers - First Edition - Boho Chic
MFT Die-namics Flower Trio Die
Marianne Designs Border Die
EK Success Scalloped Border Punch
Buttons and Ribbon from Stash

All the elements in the scene came in the stamp set and I used the matching dies to cut them out after I had coloured them with my Promarkers. I used small brown buttons for the centres of the sunflowers and added brown glitter for detail.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Art By Myran - #64 ATG
Crafty Friends - #38 ATG
Penny Black & More - ATG with a Stamp

Bye for now,

Lorraine

Oh my word this is adorable. I love the colours, although a Summer card has a slightly Autumnal feel. What a great set of stamps and dies.
