Dream Valley Challenge 11 Summer
Summer time, and the livin' is easy...
I'm sorry I'm a bit late with my Dream Valley Challenges DT card. I was whisked away to the North Norfolk coast for a birdwatching weekend my my old man. It was wonderful!!!
Back to business: we had loads of fabulous entries for our 'ribbon' challenge last time! You are all very imaginative and talented!!
Now we have a Summer theme for the next fortnight, so we want to see bright colours, summer or holiday images, fun on the beach, swimsuits and flip-flops, or even all of the above - whatever 'summer' is for you. For me it's ICE CREAM - somehow, ice cream is never as good as when it's eaten on a beach on a hot, sunny day!
Our lovely sponsors are One Stop Card Crafts - they are also on Facebook under that name.
My ice cream card started with the Penny Black image - this was one of the first stamps I bought, and I love her, isn't she cool? Love that smiley face - and the ice cream cone!!
Papers are Funky Hand The stripy paper is meant to be like a deckchair, and the spotty paper recalls Neapolitan ice cream. The sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday was ideal with the three background panels, and I turned it sideways to fit the image in so the ice cream colours showed.
Flowers are Wild Orchid, leaves are a Woodware Stamp. The ribbon came from Hobbycraft. The sentiment is Lili of the Valley. I stickled her jewellery to give a bit of bling and also put blobs of stickles on the flowers to look like dew.
I really enjoyed making this card, which I've given to a dear friend who runs the parent-and-toddler group where I volunteer. I'm hoping she has a great summer and lots of lovely ice cream!!
Do pop over to Dream Valley to see the lovely work that the DT has done, and you're more than welcome to join in with your creations!
Oh my, it's rather late and it was my bed time half an hour ago, so I'll wish you all goodnight!
Thanks for looking, and have a good week!
luv, Mags x
PS rats, I'v lost my Promarker list! What a plonker!!
