Cheery Lynn Designs - Hot Summer Colours



Good morning :)  My card today is for our new challenge over at Cheery Lynn Designs this week where our theme is 'Hot in the Summer'.  One lucky winner will receive a $20 voucher to spend online and as there are so many fabby dies to choose from this is a brillo prize!

Now I admit to getting in a tizz with my card, and this was my second attempt.  I tend to naturally favour really cool colours or darker shades, and I have quite a stash of discarded bright papers that hurt my eyes! lol :D  (I save em for my nieces!)   However, luckily I had just bought this gorgeous Dovecraft Garden Party paper and it was perfect for this.

I layered my papers onto buttercream Bazzil cardstock and before sticking the layers down I tucked under the medium sized Doily Stacker Circle and the Lace Light Deco Border.  I added the Tropical Flourish and Small Butterfly to the side panel and made the tiny cute flowers from the Darling Daisies Die (I LOVE these wee daisies!)

All dies used on this card are:


I hope you find time to enter the challenge and dont forget there is always fresh and inspirational projects uploaded daily by the rest of our talented DT over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration blog too.

Super the way your white image panel contrasts with the buttercream cardstock. That buttercream is a gorgeous colour with the papers & I love the way you used that for all the matting & die-cutting - very effective indeed.
