Anything Goes- Summer Days!

Hellooo! Well how fantastic was the Olympics yesterday as well?! I'm especially pleased for Andy Murray- two fantastic medals!! And we narrowly missed out on about 4 gold medals! We're on fire! 

Yes, it's Tuesday today so that means it's Anything Goes time and this week we have the lovely challenge of "Summer Days"- not sure how appropriate this is for the UK this summer but we can all dream!

My sis asked me to make a card for her friend's birthday and she cycles alot so she picked out Flora the Cyclist from Stamping Bella.  I think this is one of my fav makes for a while- I just really like the colours on it. These stunning papers are by Echo Park- This and That. I didn't use the sentiment that comes with Flora but the sentiment I've used is an individual Stamping Bella sentiment. I've used the Memory Box label die for the sentiment.

Close up!

How cuuuute is her hair and her little pleated skirt and cami?!!!

Do please pop over to the Challenge and check out the rest of my teamies' fabbie work! Don't forget you can purchase all your crafty stash at great prices from Lynne at The Craft Den!

I'll see you on Saturday for another Sketch Saturday Challenge! Take care and enjoy the rest of the Olympics! Go Team GB!!!!!

Crafty stash used: Stamps (Stamping Bella); Copics; Watercolour pencils; Lyra pencils; Papers (Echo Park); Assorted cardstock; Label dies (Memory Box); Butterfly (Die-namics); Flower (Prima); Nailheads (Josy Rose); Hot fix crystal (London Bead Co); Ribbon; Diamante ribbon slider (Ebay)
