From Winter to Summer

My first post today was a Christmas card and my second is a complete contrast with these bright summery colours which are a little out of my comfort zone but it's good to try different colour combos I think. The sweet image is Sugar Nellie and I this is my second entry into The Sugar Bowl using their great sketch. The papers are Echo Park walk in the park. I distressed and inked all the edges and used some Core'dinations card which I embossed and sanded. As the papers are double sided I turned down the corner so you get a glimpse of the other side and added some pearls and a K&Co sparkly layered daisy. The part circle is from a pack of jam covers I bought at Dunelm Mill. I would also like to enter the summertime challenge at Creative Craft and will be entering the yellow and orange challenge on the Sugar Nellie Facebook page.
