Over at Outlawz Twisted Thursday our optional challenge theme or twist this week is to make anything related to "SUMMER". Our sponsor for July is Sami Stamps.
I colored my image using Promarkers and a white gel pen. I cut the image using a stitched rectangle die from Lawn Fawn and adhered it to a doily and an embossed panel.
The DP is from Pebbles, and the die cut flowers and butterfly are made with dies that came free with some magazines some time ago.

This is my last week of summer holiday and the weather in Oslo is fantastic, sunny and hot. I haven't been much at home, enjoying the weather and doing different sorts of stuff, but I'll catch up with you very soon....

This card is also for these challenges:
1) Crafting for all Seasons - #105 Cute and Summery
2) I love Promarkers - #276 Summer
3) Inky Chicks - #53 - My Furry Friend
4) Get Creative Challenges - Flowers

A very cool kitty nestled among the posies, and the cool blues add to the calming relaxed feel of this card. Loved the stitching on the focal point, and that delightful pop of the green toned doily. Great combination of the cool shades of colors, with the crisp white. Always love a pretty gingham, and the fun butterfly. So glad you had a lovely holiday. Nice to have you back and crafting again. TFS & Happy wkend. Hugs too.
