Rory Outdoors

This is the first card I’ve made for several weeks, as we’ve been in the south of France with our new caravan.  We stayed at the campsite where we’ve spent 23 years – with a 4 year break – and it was wonderful to be back.  We saw quite a few old friends and now we’re looking forward to going back again next year.  Yesterday the temps in our area of France was around 34 degrees – it’s hard to believe it’s the middle of September.

Fab’n Funky have a new challenge starting today – chosen by Buffy – who would like you to Go Outside and let your card be Inspired by Nature

Our fabulous sponsor this week is Lacy Sunshine

with a prize of 3 images for the lucky winner

I used the Lacy Sunshine image – Rory – What a Great Life – for my card.  I embossed the background with a leaves embossing folder and cut a circle of blue and placed the fussy cut image – coloured with Promarkers and a Flexmarker – on this.  The butterfly die cut is from the JS Signature range, with a repeat die cut of the butterflies – glittered – placed on top.  The mushroom image is a stamp I won ages ago and the flower lace and pearls are from Ribbon Girl.
