Hi Ladies, hope you are all looking forward to a relaxing weekend and lets hope the weather improves. Todays card has been created for two Challenges Sir Stampalots "Lazy Hazy Days of Summer" and Penny Black at Allsorts "A Burst of Summer Colour" and as I know that its necessary to use a Penny Black image Ive used this gorgeous little Hedgie relaxing in a hammock between two daisies, if only if were possible for us to do this but Im more like to crush the daisies just walking over them than relaxing in a hammock between two.
Anyway Ive stamped in onto white card then coloured it with my copic pens, after which Ive cut it out with my Nestabilitie square die, unfortunately it looks as though I used a bigger one that I should have as the scalloped mount Ive stuck it on is a bit small, never mind Im sure weve all done that at sometime or other.
The base card is a 7"x 7" card with a first layer of a turquoise card and one of four fabulous paper designs from Kay Miller Downloads, she does create some gorgeous patterns, if youve not been to visit her its certainly worth clicking on this link to few them http://www.kaymillerdesigns.com/shoppe/.
The first paper Ive used is a very pretty all over flower design and the other two are a varied orange stripe and a lime green paper on these Ive used one of my Martha Stewart border punches along the edges and layered them one on top of the other, across these Ive wrapped a piece of grosgrain ribbon with a ribbon tag on it with a sentiment from my stash.
The mounted image and a further square with yet the last of my papers have been arranged in a diamond shape at the top, and two flowers with some punched out leaves were arranged in two opposite corners. My final flourish is the two sets of aqua pearls at the top and bottom on the left and bottom right hand sides.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
