Divas by Design, Challenge No 7: Summer is here

Or is it, 'cause I can't see it!

Hello blogworld,

Are you ready for a new a challenge over at Divas by Design?  The theme this time is 'Summer is here' and we are sponsored by Di's Digi Downloads for this challenge.  There are some gorgeous digi stamps over there, why not pop over and take a look?

So where is it then - Summer?  I don't know I thought end of July it would be lovely and hot (same as I remember from my childhood) and look at it - overcast, raining and chilly!  What has happened to the seasons?  Or is just the golden haze of childhood covering my memories and in reality it was always a bit dull and chilly?

Anyway enough of my meanderings, lets show what you actually came here for - my card:

The image is from Di's - Flower Beary Fairy coloured with my Prisma pencils and die-cut onto nesties.
The paper is Prima Marketing - Annalee pad.
The borders were created with a Fiskars punch and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The card blank and sentiment are from Craftwork Cards.

So I hope this and the other fabulous cards that my fellow DT have created have given you some inspiration and I look forward to seeing your wonderful entries.

Best of luck,

Entering this card into:
Sketch Saturday - Week #165 - 23rd July
