Summer Blooms

The Penny Black and More  challenge this month is "Summer Blooms" and  this is my DT card. I wanted to make something bright and summery for this challenge. Not a difficult card to make but full of cuteness and colourful. I did basic colouring on my Penny Black  image with Promarkers as I wanted to keep it clean and fresh looking. The acetate flowers and  Flonz Craft  Butterfly image added to my summer scene. I finished it off by adding some candy to my border die.
I have entered my card into a few challenges listed below. Anything goes The great outdoors Anything goes Summertime Anything goes Anything goes Anything goes Summer colours Summer Summer Anything goes Spots and dots Anything goes Pink Anything goes Anything goes Anything goes Anything goes Seasons (Summer) long hot summer Bold and bright Die cuts and/or punches

hi shirley, i love how you've coloured this cute image and the added butterflies; i chose those as well but they wouldn't fit on my card so now i know it has to be a larger sized card.
