A Sugary Sweet Summer Card

Morning ladies! This week Cupcake Challenge 46 has the fabulous theme of Summer and the equally fabulous prize of a $20 gift certificate for Simon Says Stamp for one lucky winner. Unfortunately Lauren has decided to stop running the challenge blog so next week will be our last ever challenge...weep weep. I am also going to enter this card into Charisma Cardz Challenge 25 where anything goes and Stamp Something where you have to use three embellishments.

For my card I have used the very sweet Sugar Nellie stamped image of Daisy that I received from a blog bud and she is coloured with distress inks. The paper is from doodlebug and I just love it! I kept the layout nice and simple as I thought the paper was so pretty and I couldn't bear to cover it up!! My three embellishments are ribbon and two pearls and I used my threading water punch to add the scallops.

The inside is once again, nice and simple and the sentiment is from whiff of joy.

Card/Paper: White, yellow and pink card, Doodlebug paper
Stamps: Sugar Nellie - Daisy, WOJ - General Sayings set
Colouring: Distress inks - tattered rose, vintage photo, worn lipstick, faded jeans, peeled paint, broken china, spiced marmalade, weathered wood
Embellishments: ribbon, pearls
Tools: Cuttlebug, nesties, fiskars threading water punch, water brush

Thanks for looking. x
