Crafting for all Seasons #105 "Cute and Summery"

Good morning all.

Many thanks for all your lovely comments on yesterday's post, I think I've managed to scrape myself off the ceiling!

Time once again for a new challenge at CFAS, sadly this will be our final challenge as I have decided to step down as Co-Ordinator and none of the team are able to take over. Our theme this time is "Cute and Summery", we're being sponsored by That Craft Place who gave the DT images to work with.

I've opted not to use a sponsor image this time. My card uses the bonus papers from the current Quick Cards Made Easy magazine. I've used a Poppy Stamps background die to make the background, using the inlaid die technique, added some twine and a topper along with a sentiment tag.

Do pop over to the challenge blog to see the inspiration from the other girls, you won't be disappointed.

Challenges entered:
Fan-Tastic Tuesday - anything goes with a touch of  summer
Craft-Dee BowZ - anything goes with a handmade bow
Not Just Cards - anything goes
Great Impressions - anything goes
Bloggers - summertime
Sister Act Card Challenge - anything goes
