Summer Garden

Wow, time flew today, as I was at a special 4 yr old’s birthday party 🙂  But I’m still in time to make my DT inspiration post for the current challenge at the Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook group. Our theme for the month of July is Summertime/Seaside, so for this card, I went with the summertime theme.  I used the image “Summer Garden“, available at the CCK Etsy shop.

I colored the gorgeous image with my copic and SN markers, then set it aside as I assembled the rest of the easel card.  I used a textured paper as a background, and formed die cut daisies to coordinate with the image.  A hot pink doily, a strip of lace and some narrow ribbon were the embellishments I used.  After stamping the sentiment, I cut it out with a banner die and popped it up on some foam.  After all the flowers were arranged around the image and sentiment, all that was needed to finish the card were a few hot pink Nuvo Drop accents 🙂

I’d like to enter this in the following:
