Ladybug Crafts Challenge – Summer Flowers

Hello, how are you keeping?

Today I am here to show my last card as a member of the Ladybug Crafts Challenge DT and the theme running for the month of July is Summer Flowers!

The image I used is from the new Hobby House Ready to Colour Art Book called Spring Flowers. Hmmmm, I appear to have got the season wrong but never mind! This image looks lovely and summery to me!

Stamps: LOTV ‘Pretty Grungy – Good Times’ sentiment set
Dies/Punches:  Tonic ‘Nesting Circles’ & ‘Nesting Ovals’ – Tattered Lace ‘Ornate Leaves’ – X-Cut small butterfly palm punch
Paper/Card: Nitwit Collection ‘Gratitude Too’
Colouring/Ink: Spectrum Noir markers & pencils
Others: Yellow flowers from The Works – Peach Blossoms and mini roses from WOC – Gems and ribbon from my stash

Have a wonder over to the Ladybug Crafts Blog and play along!

Thanks so much for looking and have a wonderful day!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
Jane xx
