Hi everyone, hope everyone is well! I have had a lovely day cardmaking, and in between doing a little (very little) housework. Well today I have managed to complete two Challenges again, and here is the first one.... This Challenge is from
Arty Girlz Challenge - Challenge No. 49 "Summer". Now when I think about Summer, I think lovely walks in the Country, and eating Ice-Cream, and this Sugar Nellie stamp, called "Summer Ice-Cream", fits the bill perfectly. I have coloured the stamped image in with my Art-Kure Watercolour Brushes. The image has then been layered on some Orange Handmade paper, which I have torn around the edges, and layered up again on a plain piece of Orange cardstock. I have used a piece of "Dotty" paper which was an off-cut from a previous project, and have placed that down the spine of the card. The final touches were a mixture of paper/silk flowers, combined to make this single flower, and some Orange Gems down the bottom corner, for a little added interest.

I hope you enjoyed your visit, and pop back soon! Happy Crafting x
