Sunshine alert

What fantastic weather we're having in the East Mids - hope it's the same in your neck of the woods. It's so nice to wake up in the morning to the sun streaming in through the window.
Though I'm beginning to think all this sun has addled my brain a bit - you'll see what I mean when you look down at my first creation of the day. Although the photo shows it a bit mustardy whereas it is a definite bright orange / yellow in colour.

I've used a hammered texture card and drawn in the lined border and design in the left corner with a gold glitter gel pen. I used a Marianne Craftable CR1214 die and cut it into 2 pieces for two other corners. The butterfly is Marianne Creatable LR0115 die and the flowers are made with Marianne Creatable LR0156 die-cuts which I then placed onto some backing card and cut out.
I am a big fan of die-cuts and I love playing around with them to see how they can be used - the Craftable CR1214 is one of the most useful for frames and corners.
Th circles have been cut with the X-cut shape cutter system

I shall enter this in the following challenges

Marianne Design challenge 'Use Craftables' (I used CR1214 - cut up)
Polka Doodles challenge 'Doodled Edge / Border - Happy Birthday'
