Summertime Blues

Evening all, hope your all well.  Well I'm officially on my holidays til 5th Sept, shool closed last Friday Whoop whoop. Just had a lovely weekend away and just got back and  thought I'd get started on some orders.  This card has been made following the new "Cupcake Craft Challenge ~ first 150 your favourite Cup Cake", you can choose your favourite past challenge themes. I followed sketch #52 and theme "Summer".

Attention to detail:

The stamp and sentiment are from the new Magnolia collection and have been coloured with my promarkers: China blue, blue pearl, cornflour blue, cocoa, burnt sienna, umber, cool grey 1-5, satin, blush and dusky pink. I cut Tilda out and layered her onto the embossed square. I embossed the square with my spots and dots folder and used my square nesties.

The papers are scraps of Basic Grey and My Minds Eye, The card is also scraps of powder blue, navy and royal blue all from "Papermill".
The card has been embellished with blue beads (recycled jewellery) and blue gems.


I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
