Flowers in your hair

Where did Summer go? I think we had it in April this year. Yesterday it poured with rain in between some sunny spells with a bit of thunder thrown in. Today has been cool and dull with a bit of rain. At least my card has a Summery feel. It is of course one of the gorgeous new girl stamps from LOTV. I kept the colours really soft on this with some papers from Country Companions Lover's Lane and Forever Friends Pink Parfait. I used an MS border punch, some ric rac, K & Co sparkly daisies and Crealie die cut leaves. I also used a Sakura Rosestar pen on the flowers for added sparkle.The sentiment is from Do Crafts Tulip range.

Challenges:
Stamptacular Fun in the Sun
Whoopsi Daisy Pile on those flowers

For fun Summer fun

Hi Marianne, I lvoe the gorgeous detail work you have created with your die cuts. The leaves and MS border punch is fantastic. It adds such a nice finishing touch to your adorable image. I love your soft pastel color scheme. Very well done!

Hi Marianne, this is such a cute image. I love your card, great colours and I just adore all of your embellishments they look perfect. At least we have an excuse in New Zealand it is winter and it did rain most of Saturday night, thunder and lightning but it isn't cold here between 16-20c I still have a T-Shirt on and jeans with no heating which is very warm for this time of year. Our flowering Cherry Tree flowers in September October and has started to flower already pour plants don't know what going on with the seasons.
Great job and thanks so much for sharing your card with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and good luck.
