Bit of Summer

Afternoon All!! As we brace ourselves for the snow again over the next couple of days I thought I would try & bring some summer relief to us all. Just try & remind ourselves of what summer can be like :-)

This card is for the hubby of yesterday's recipient & I thought I would go with a bit of humour. I found the image through Pinterest ( if you haven't used it, you are truly missing out). I coloured with Promarkers & placed onto the card using foam pads. Here is a close up.

The papers are freebies from magazines. I just added a ribbon & a few gems to finish. The inside of the card is fairly plain just using the same papers. x Clare x
