Dreaming of Summer at Fashionable Stamping Challenges

Hello there, we've got a brand new challenge starting at Fashionable Stamping Challenge and this time we're 'Dreaming of Summer'.  There's a $20 voucher from Flonzcraft up for grabs for our lucky winner and of course there is lots of inspiration from my talented DT sisters over on the challenge blog so do pop over and have a look.

I've used one of my favourite Flonzcraft stamps 'Girl on Windy Hill' for my card and papers from Graphic 45. I coloured the image with Graph'It markers and paper pieced her dress with a scrap of the backing paper. I added a background with PanPastels and  die cut the image with nesties and layered it up over a little postcard and a border from the paper pad, and some lace and gingham ribbon. I added faux stitching with a marker pen and distressed everything with a craft knife and distress ink.

To finish off I added some paper daisies and poppies, a red button and some twine.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
A Creative Romance: colours of your national flag (red, white and blue)
Die Cut Divas: button or bow
Inky Impressions: summer fun
Moving along with the times: girls just want to have fun
Natalie and Amy's: Summertime
QKR Stampede: paper piecing
The Paper Girls: red white and blue
Time out: Fun in the sun

Thanks for visiting, hope to see you again soon
