Summer, Poppy and Pollen.


I have struggled to make a card this week due to pollen and itchy eyes....  tut. :)  I keep on rubbing them and making them quite sore, but I have soldiered on (lol) and today made this summery card using a great new digi-stamp from Sugar Nellie - Funky Kits .  This image is called poppy, and there are 3 more to collect.  They are ALL adorable, and a lot of fun to colour. 

I used K&Co papers and also HOTP, layered paper flowers from a QVC kit, and a metal sunshine charm from stash. 

The SCS Sugar Nellie challenge blog has now moved to PCP and this weeks challenge was 'no squares'.  I used a rectangle card blank, and stretched the sketch on Friday Sketchers.

I am entering this card in the following competitions:

PCP SugarNellie - Not a square card
Sir Stampalot - Lazy Hazy Summer
By The Cute and Girly - Warm Summer Days
Charizma Cards - Metal - I used a sunshine metal charm and added some chain to make a dangle.
PCP - Simon Says Stamp - Summer Time
Friday Sketchers - Really great sketch by Inge

Thanks for looking, and good luck to everyone in these challenges

Absolutely stunning. That colouring is glorious with that backing paper too & I love your use of charms & all the little gem detail on this. Take care of those eyes - hayfever can make you feel really rotten so be gentle with yourself.
Take care
