Card Makin Mamas 'Summertime' challenge

Hi again & time for another Card makin mamas challenge, where this fortnight its a 'Summertime' theme. Don't forget to head over to the challenge blog where you can enter your Summery creations & see some other fab inspiration from the design team...


...Scrummy papers that just scream out 'Summer' to me! are 'Sparkly Sweet' by K & Co. Magnolia image is 'Hello little butterfly' from the 2011 Butterfly dreams range. I made a circular easel card, by attatching this main circle to the base. Lovely wide white ribbon tied in bow & decorated with butterfly & button serves as stopper to keep the back standing upright...


...Notice the pom pom trim around the edges by Fancy Pants, such a great little trim!  Flowers by Wild Orchid Crafts & cute little charm from Bunny Zoe Crafts. (Also available from Stamp & Create if you live in America/ Canada) 'Summer Breze' sentiment has been stamped with Studio G mini-alphabet stamps onto kraft cardstock, then I've made 2 tabs from the same cardstock as the base... 

Skin: YR000, YR20
Cheeks: R20
Hair: E43, E47
Dress front, sleeves, boots & outer butterfly: V000, V01, R81
Dress back & inner butterfly: B000, B02
Dress trim: Y000, Y15
Ribbon: G000, G21

...I made the little ornate pin using beads set with Glossy Accents. Shiny butterfly has actually been recycled from a Birthday tag! The swiss dot button is from my local market & has been tied with twine.
