LOTV Summer Fun.

Hi Folks!

Hope you're all enjoying this long, hot, dry summer?  Lol.  Well, in the crafting world the weather can be whatever we want it to be, and today's summer in my craft room!

I have used Lili of the Valley stamps for both the topper image and the sentiment.  The image was coloured using my promarkers...which I definitely prefer to Speccies, lol.

The papers are all from Bearly Mine, but the matting layers were colour picked from one of the papers.   I have done a little bit of distressing using a distressing tool, and also a bit of inking using Milled Lavender.  The inside matches the front.

The gorgeous roses and the silver filigree corners are from Wild Orchid.

The doily is from Ebay and the little glitter dots are from Papermania.  The faux gems are from my stash.

I have used Spellbinders circle and lacy circle cutting dies for the sentiment. 

I will be entering this card into the following challenges: where the theme is 'In Bloom.' where the them is 'Flowers in Bloom.' where the theme is 'Summer Daze.' where the theme is 'a Little Bit Distressed.' where the theme is 'What's Your Crafty Passion?' the theme is 'Anything Goes.'  with the theme 'Anything Goes.'

Phew!  Going for a sit down now, lol.
Enjoy what's left of the weekend everyone, and don't go getting sunburn!  Lol.
Happy Crafting.
