DT card for Craft-Room Challenge 'Summer holiday'

Well here we are again, another 2 weeks have flown by and it is time for another challenge her at Craft-room challenge.  The theme this fortnight is Summer Holiday and as I am  now home in Bude for my Summer holiday the theme is very apt!  You all did amazingly well at our butterfly challenge last fortnight, and I hope to see you all again this fortnight.

I have used my minds eye summer papers for the backing on this card and an Xcut heart boarder punch

Side view

The image is called 'Kate chilling' and is a digi stamp from the stitchy bear store and she has been cut out with a scalloped nesties die that has been inked around the edge.  She has been coloured with pro markers and I have used glossy accents on the rubber ring and the glass.

The flower is my favourite unknown stamp!  which has been coloured with pro markers, I have added a button for the centre, the swirls are marianne creatables  and I have added pearl gems to the ends and to the scallops on the nesties die.

I created the sentiment on my computer and punched it out, thin inked the edge.  I have mounted it onto a nellie snellen die cut and hug a charm from my stash onto it. 

I hope you like it

I will be entering this card into the following challenges
