its a new Craft Punked Blog Challenge today and the them is Summertime. Well where is it? i think we had it back in March when we had a few really scorchio days. My goodness i am fed up of all this rain and i am on holiday next week and really hoped it would dry and sunny for Hyde park on Tuesday at the Madonna concert as i'm taking Gracie and her Mam, Emma. Anyway hopefully it will not be cancelled as that's what happened to Kylie and Jason. Any way we will see and we will take waterproofs and maybe i need to go and buy some wellies.
OK enough of that now to my card. I have used Isabella from Bugaboo digis and you could win vouchers too if you enter. I chose this stamp as i loved the beach when i was little and went on lots of beach holidays with my family as a child. However i hate the sand now i just really can't be bother with it and would much rather stay beside a nice clean pool. How things change.
I've coloured her with my spectrum noirs and used coredinations behind the backing paper. The backing paper is one that i have used for the first time and its from Jayne Nestorenko Summer Adorable cd Rom. I have had this for a while now and not even looked at it but i love this paper. So to keep it very summery i chose orange and the ribbon and pearls were white but i have coloured them with my spectrums. How fab is that, they now match perfectly to my colour scheme. The sentiment stamp is a whimsy one i think and the die i have used is a Marianne die.
