My Mum's Craft Shop Challenge 8 - Summer Sun

Thursday, 1 August 2013
Goooood morning, wow is it really August already!  This year is just flying by isn't it :-)

Do you fancy winning yourself a voucher to spend in My Mum's Craft Shop?  Of course you do... well it's time for a new challenge over on the Blog and this month our theme is

'Summer Sun'

This can be interpreted any way you like with summery images, scenes colours, whatever takes your fancy really.

For my card I've gone with summery colours, yellow, orange and hot pink.

It's a fairly simple card for me which was nice for a change.

I've started off embossing a square of white card using the Crafts Too Summer Days embossing folder and I've accented it with some glitter although you can't really tell on the picture.

I've then layered up some strips of paper from the Echo Park Dots and Stripes Candy Shoppe paper pad and made my scalloped edges using the Die-namics Jumbo Scallop Die

The yummy felt flower is made using the Die-Namics Loopy Bloom die and I've sewn a chunky orange button into the centre.  The felt leaves have just been handcut...can you tell !

Last but not least I've used some more of the paper to die cut a label from the Die-Namics Layered Label die and mounted my flower onto it with PVA.

I'm hoping the sun will be coming out today the clouds look a bit ominous out there today !

To be in with a chance of winning, pop over to the blog and link your creations and you can also check out the gorgeous cards from the rest of the DT girls.

You have until 31 August to enter - good luck !!
