A little bit of summer



I spotted a few challenges for Summer related cards so I made this bright and summery birthday card. The papers are all from the same collection and the stamp is by Marianne designs. I cut out the flower shapes using a Marianne die then rolled them around the end of my paint brush to form the flowers. This is a different kind of card to what I usually make as I challenged myself to make a card with "white space". This was so difficult for me as I like lots of layers but  it is and it is nice to get out of my comfort zone for a bit.
I have entered my card into these challenges:-

Wonderful card, Shirley! Your coloring and layout are great. Thanks for joining us at Saturated Canary, however one of the requirements for winning the prize is that you use a SC image. I just wanted to point this out for future reference. Good luck in all the challenges you entered. I'm sure you'll do well.
