3 Summery Challenges

I haven't cropped this image as it's quite ironic, I take my pictures in the porch and you can see on the window the rain lashing down - yep it's Summer alright!

Anyway, onto the three challenges I'm entering this card for, the first is Stamps & Smiles - The Fresh Batch, which was a sketch, the other two are Nutshells and Scrappy Frogs, both of which had a summery theme this week.

The image is one of the gorgeous Nutshells stamps, I really love their stamps, they're great fun and all have a fab summery feel and I've coloured her with ProMarkers, the papers are from FunkyHand's Seasons CD, the c/s is SU! Tempting Turquoise and I've added two little butterfly stickers which I've put first onto acetate and then just stuck them in the middle to give their wings a bit of lift.

Right let's hope this summery card brings the sun back out again - please!

That is a great image and your card is lovely and summery as long as you don't look in the background lol. Weather is just as bad over here in NI it has rained all night long and is still threatening more.
