Summer Lovin'

Morning guys! :) I can't quite believe how fast this month is zooming by - it's almost AUGUST! Yikes!!

It's time for another challenge from us over at Passion for ProMarkers - and Team 1 are showcasing another bunch of SUMMER makes! Be sure to stop by the BLOG when you're done here to check out the girls work and to have a gander at the prize up for grabs!!

This week we wanna see..


Here's a card I whipped up using the beautiful Cali Girl from Saturated Canary which I have to admit to buying a long time ago.. and I have only just got around to colouring her up for this card. I'm such a digi hoarder! I keep telling myself *it's okay, they never go off* - really gotta sort myself out.

So, some of you may remember THIS card I posted last week with a gate fold, you probably seen it coming.. but I just had to try it again. It makes my brain think a little bit harder with re. to where I can place my sentiments and embellishments.

I coloured Cali Girl with my ProMarkers to match my summer papers from Carta Bella which I hardly used last year.. so I'm tryna use them up this year! I used some Amy R stamps to create my sentiment and layered it up on top of a mini card from the paper pack and a die cut pinking circle.

I die cut a bunch of vellum clouds and added them to the image panel. I then cracked open the little envelope of gifted orange buttons I recieved from my wonderful crafty friend Debbi and added a couple of those around about the design. 

I hate any of my workings showing on the inside of my card, so I'm always super careful about where I position brads and buttons (I always stitch my buttons to my cards) before adhering anything down, that way the recipient will never know how things are stuck down and it will look way neater.

As always I finished the the whole design off with a bunch of liquid pearls, sequins and stickles. 

Thank you for popping by today guys. Be sure to check out the work from the awesome Passion for ProMarkers DT girls over at the blog! Get some inspiration for the Summer Lovin' theme, and join in! xo
