An Orange and Lemon Summer

We've had another lovely sunny day here in the East Midlands and so my card today seems to match the weather perfectly.

I've used a Wild Rose Studio stamp called 'In the Meadow' which I coloured with Promarkers and used chalks for the sky. The background paper is Dovecraft 'Back to Basics' and the embossed card was done with a folder which was a magazine freebie. To finish I added pearls, flowers, ribbon and sentiment which are all from my stash.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Joanna Sheen challenge 'Citrus Colours'
Sketch Saturday challenge 'Sketch'
Cards and Scrap challenge 'In the Garden'
That Craft Place challenge 'It's a Girl Thing'
Crafts and Me challenge 'Anything Goes'
Creative Inspirations challenge 'Bingo' (sentiment / pearls / flowers)
The Paper Shelter challenge 'Anything Goes'
Bearly Mine challenge 'Anything Goes' (my 2nd entry)
My Mum's Craft Shop challenge 'Just For Girls' (my 3rd entry)
Inky Chicks challenge 'Summer Colours'

Thanks for dropping by and I hope you can pop back tomorrow to see my DT card for the PCJ challenge.
