Summer Hearts & Flowers

I'm a bit behind with the challenges this week so this card is for four of them. The theme this week on Stamp Something is summer, I used the sketch from Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge 37, for this weeks Papertake challenge you have to use hearts or flowers and finally Cute Card Thursday is to use something metallic on your card.

The paper is from dovecraft retro flowers range which has nice bright summer colours but I do find some of the papers a bit on the busy side!! For the embossed panel I used my stylized flowers folder and the penny black image is coloured with distress inks.

The floral paper, the two flowers and the heart shaped jewel cover the papertake hearts and flowers elements, the metal brad and spacer covers the metallic element for CCT and hopefully the card looks fairly summery for stamp something!

Supplies:
Card/Paper: White, pink and yellow card, dovecraft retro flowers
Stamp: Penny black
Coloring: Distress inks - vintage photo, walnut stain, weathered wood, broken china (background), worn lipstick and tattered rose. whispers - green and blender pen
Embellishments: primas, jewel, pearl brad, spacer
Tools: Cuttlebug, stylized flowers embossing folder, water brush
Thanks for looking x
