Bright Summer Days

The theme over at SUO Challenges this week is bright summer days, which is appealing as it's officially the second day of winter where I am.  Having said that, we have a lovely sunny day today, so I can't complain!

I paired up this challenge with the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches and the color challenge at Create with Connie & Mary and this is what I came up with:


I used a retired set called Hello Blossoms, which I had to mount before I could use (hangs head in shame...).  I had to flip the sketch on its side to fit the stamped image.  All of the stamping on this card was done using markers.

Here are the challenge details:



Thanks for looking and all the very best to Rita for her upcoming adventure.

Karren

Oh I don't envy you the winter months. We finally got rid of our snow not so long ago. The little banner peeking over the stamped image is so cute. Thanks for playing CCMC!
