He loves me ...

Morning peeps, some exciting news today!

To tie in with the Summer Special Day at their shop on Saturday, Lili of the Valley are running a challenge on their Facebook page. It will run til Thursday and has the theme of 'Summer'.
There's fab prizes on offer, why not have a go?

I've made my first Design Collective card for June on the Summer theme. Daisies look so pretty growing in the lawn during the summer and who hasn't tried this fun little test on their first young romance?


I started off by colouring in the lovely 'James - Daisy' stamp with Graph'It markers

I layered this onto a paper from the 'Always and Forever - Solids' Paper Pad
Then I wrapped some ribbon around one of the papers in the 'Country Meadow' paper pad and stuck it to my base card (7" x 7"). I ended up having to twist them because I'd attached them the wrong way round, but by happy accident it looks much better this way!

For the daisy petals I printed off the words on my computer and drew petal shapes around them before cutting out. I shaped them a little before attaching with silicone glue

The flowers are made with more Country Meadow papers and a punch, with white glitter dots for the centres.

Well, let's hope this will encourage the summer weather to arrive soon!

I'm entering this into the following challenges:-
Creative Inspirations - Pastel Shades
Simon Says Stamp - Anything goes
Cute Card Thursday - Too cute
A gem of a challenge - Flowers
As you like it - Favourite Decade/Period in life - My favourite period was childhood summers - long sunny days playing in the garden, country walks, visits to the beach and, of course, icecream!

Hope you have a lovely day everyone,
Katrina x
