Summer Sun

Fed up with the rain? (It's been raining a lot in the UK over the past couple of days). I am, so last night I made this card to remind me of the warm and cosy glow of a summery day.

I've made this card for the Whiff of Joy challenge which this week has a wonderful sketch by Bev. It was a dream to work with. For a change I stayed away from white card stock for the card blank and went with a bold orange instead. Like the flowers? I bought a nifty little flower loom yesterday and I love the way these little beauties turn out.
Items used:
Whiff of Joy - Willow with hot chocolate and a WOJ sentiment stamp
Papers: DCWV Far East Mat Stack. Scrapperdashery - Shakespeare - Twelfth Night
MS Doiley Lace Punch
ProMarkers. Tim Holtz spiced marmalade and mustard seed distress inks
The rest is from my stash.

Thanks for looking,
