Sunny Wishes

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at Double D Challenges. Team Darlene is hosting this challenge with the theme “Colors of DD_ColoursOfSummer_July21Summer”. The team have created a bunch of beautiful cards to inspire you – a visit to the Double D Challenge blog will be worthwhile. We have also a fun prize to give away to one lucky player which will be chosen by Random.org.

Now onto the details of my summer card for the new challenge. I decided to make a slimline, clean and simple card, for this challenge. I don’t have any dies or stamps with sea shells or beach balls, so my choice was to go with a bunch of lovely flowers. I used a long neglected stamp which was a perfect fit for the slimline design. The image was coloured with my Derwent Inktense watercolour pencils and then the top layer (with the stamped image) layered with mirror tape on the base layer for a bit of dimension. I added a sentiment, a few light green gemstones and a bow to finish off.  Hope you like my take on the challenge.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

A snapshot of the flowers and butterflies

The sentiment

A peep at the inside

Thanks for stopping by. I love reading your thoughts in the comments below. Have a wonderful day!

Kind regards,

Amelia
