Dreaming of Summer

Last week the weather here was fantastic – the temps got to 24 degrees, we worked in the garden, bbqed and even ate outside.  This week it is cold, we have had a lot of rain and I just can’t wait for summer.

Dreaming of Summer is the title of this gorgeous image from All Dressed Up, which I was lucky enough to win recently.  I coloured it with Copics, and die cut around it with a stitched circle die.  The papers, lace and pearls are from my stash and the sentiment is computer generated.  I cut two Butterfly Flourish dies from Joanna Sheen and placed a second butterfly, distressed and glittered, on top of the base ones.  The flowers, from the Ribbon Girl, are placed over a Lavish Branch from Memory Box and a Fanciful Flourish from Cheery Lynn dies.
