Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot!

This is one H.O.T. card today with it's bright summery colours. Just reminds me of the song... Feeling Hot Hot Hot! (and I have been this week - been running a temperature for 3 days). That means I need to make this card count as it's the only card I made last weekend and I haven't felt up to doing anything so far this week.

So, lots of challenges to enter it into:
Basic Grey - Stitching
Crafty Calendar Club - Summer (the hot summery colours)
Crafty Catz Challenge - Summertime (Summer's hot colours)
Crazy for challenges - inspiration photo (I used some of the colours)
Create 4 Fun - Use Flowers
Creative Inspirations - animals (a butterfly)
For Fun Challenges - Summer Bright Colours
Friday Sketchers - Jeanette's Sketch
Mami Doodles - Anything Goes
Oh La La Creations - Birthday (The sentiment is there - just click on the picture to view it)
Rosie D's Challenge - All Creatures Great and Small
Stamp Something - Something flowery
The Stamp Man - Anything Goes

This is my Colour Create DT card for the fantastic combination picked by Victoria of HOT PINK, WARM ORANGE and SAFFRON with the optional extra of BUTTERFLIES. Wowzers! What a gorgeous combination.

Items used:
Lilac Lemon Designs - Art Deco Bride/Flapper Stamp (I LOVE these stamps - thanks for bringing them to us Beckie)
Basic Grey (the matted paper) I stupidly put the pad away with all my other Basic Grey pads but I think it was from Ambrosia - distressed with Mustard Seed.
Anna Griffin swirl stamp
My Minds Eye - Wild Asparagus stamps
Prima Flowers
Ribbon, Gems, Charms and Chain from my stash.

Please take a look at the amazing cards the DT have made with this combination - they are glorious!

Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx
