Summer card

Although I love making Christmas cards, I cannot deny it's high summer over here. The cicadas have all emerged, making their loud chirping noises. They really seem to like it when temperatures are over 30 °C.

So I think it's a good idea to be showing some flower cards.

The papers, die cut and sentiment are Marianne Design, the image is Penny Black and the flowers, brad and flower ribbon are from my stash. The image was coloured with Derwent Coloursoft pencils.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Sir Stampelot – Anything goes
Totally Ladybug Tuesday – Summer Birthdays
Fussy and Fancy – Summer
Crafty Catz – No pink or blue
Allsorts – Free & easy July
Penny Black at Allsorts – Summer Birthdays
