Anything Goes: Here Comes the Summer and candy winner!

Hello all! Well here I am again with my latest DT card for the Anything Goes Challenge. The challenge this fortnight is "Here comes the summer"! So let's see your summery papers and images- can't wait to see what you come up with! The DT have really out done themselves this week so you're in for a treat!

See end of post for details about the Anything Goes blog hop and my candy winner!

So here's my card. I love these bright and zesty papers from Basic Grey. They're called Origins and are available from The Craft Den. The stamp is a Stamping Bella called Ida Lulu coloured with lyra and watercolour pencils. I also did a bit of paper piecing and added some serious glitter! I used MFT Die-namics to make the butterfly and the loopy circle which I wanted to represent the sun.

I'd like to enter this into:
Bellarific Friday- Here comes the summer
Truly Scrumptious- Summer Sparkle
Stamping for the Weekend- lemon and lime

Sentiment is by Waltzing Mouse from their "Frame It" set.

Isn't she the cutest?! Hope you can see the glitter especially on her glasses which I love! So retro!!

Crafty stash used: Stamps (Stamping Bella, Waltzing Mouse); Lyra pencils; Watercolour pencils; Copics; Papers (Basic Grey); Assorted cardstock; Butterfly and circle dies (Die-namics); Ribbon; Tag (Papermania); Gem (Lakeland); Pearl (Wild Orchid Crafts)
