My Besties UK July Challenge- Summertime
Hi everyone, as you read this I will be returning from Barcelona so will have lots to share in my next post. Today is the first Monday of the month so sees a new challenge at My Besties UK. Our optional theme this month is Summertime. There have been some big changes to the team this month and, although I have been sad to see old members leave, we have some very talented people joining us this month. Please pop over to the challenge post to welcome them and see their work.
For my card, I have used img 076 Sophia. Isn't she gorgeous? I decided to use some beautiful summery papers I won recently- they are called Paradise Crush and are from the Trimcraft First Edition range. They are designed by Louise Tiler and I won a 6x6 and 12x12 pad in a giveaway on her Instagram page. I love these summery colours, so chose to use these for my colouring, using Spectrum Noir markers, and then continued the butterfly theme.
For the centre panel I embossed a piece of white card (I have no idea what the folder is, I've had it years!), then inked it using Picked Raspberry distress ink. I added a bright pink ribbon and bow to the panel then added the image. I fussy cut some butterflies from the paper pad and added them with some pink pearls to finish the card.
