Celebrating Summer with Sunflowers

Good Morning!
I've taken a little break from the Christmas cards and made something a little bit more seasonal for this time of year. This main image is another design from one of the Art Pads released a few years ago from Lili of the Valley. 
I've kept the card sentiment free so that it can be used for any occasion when needed.
INGREDIENTS -
LOTV Art Pad Image
Maja Design Papers
Doodlebug Sprinkles
Flowers, Berries, Paper Doily, Cheesecloth & Organza Ribbons

HAPPY CRAFTING!

A little later than I'd hoped but unfortunately work got in the way. This cute snowman along with various other designs and Gnomes will be released tomorrow!

August's Creative Inspirations Challenge!

Good Morning!
It's the first Wednesday of the month so it's time for a new challenge over at
CREATIVE INSPIRATIONS
This month's theme is 'Something Seasonal!
I'd like to see you make something celebrating the seasons! So whether you want to stick to a Summer theme, indulge in Autumnal colours and leaves or make a start on those Christmas cards it's completely up to you!
Please don't forget to write which season you have chosen!

This month's prize is from myself and is a bundle of craft goodies!
Unfortunately nobody came forward to claim this prize from April's challenge so it's back up for grabs!


For my card this month I have used an Art Sheet image by LOTV that I've had in my stash for a few years now, I think they're great for quick cards and I love the floral designs that were included. 
Oh and incase you wondered I chose the theme of 'Summer' for this month's challenge due to these all being summer blooms!

CUTE CARD THURSDAY - ANYTHING GOES
SIMON SAYS STAMP - ANYTHING GOES
INGREDIENTS -
