Hello....Summer Lovin!

Hiya Folks, don't know what it's like weather wise in your area, but we are getting some 'Sun' yep I did say 'Sun'.....hopefully it will stay longer this time, need loads of natural vitamin D!!! With Summer in mind, I made this....

Items Used
Indigo Blu Summer Lovin, Flourish Dinkie and Butterfly stamps
Lili of the Valley & Nit Wit Collections by Mary Fran 8x8 Perfect Pair Papers
Creata Gold mirror card
Our Daily Bread Hello! die
Little Birdie Boutique Elements Flowers
Papermania metal embellishments
Gold Detail embossing powder
Cosmic Shimmer Tropic Pearl embossing powder
Memento Ink pad
Wink Of Stella Brush pens
Pearls and gems from my stash

First I used the two backing papers as my base, adding the cotton lace ribbon and made a complimentary bow. I stamped the butterfly on to black card with Versamark and embossed with the Tropic Pearl CS powder and cut out. I stamped the 'Summer Lovin' on to watercolour card with Black Memento Ink and coloured using Promarkers, Cerise, Rose Pink, Mustard, Lemon and Meadow Green adding some detail with Wink of Stella Brush pens in Clear and Gold.  I then added this to the gold mirror card.

I worked out where I was going to place the 'Summer Lovin' topper and marked lightly with pencil, so I could then stamp and emboss using the 'Flourish Dinkie'  and Gold Detail powder, adding the main topper then finishing off with the butterfly topper, flowers, embelishments, pearls, gems and Hello! sentiment...
