Summer Wishes

In spite of the weather and temperatures we have in my part of the country,  I wanted to make a summercard. 
Looking through my Magnoliaimages, I felt a little "mock" from some of them (especially the bathing-dressed ones), so I chose this adorable flowergiving Tilda :)
Last Saturday I got my new DistressMarkers, and (of course!) had to try them immediately. 
It was real fun trying them, but, for now, I think I'll stick to my beloved ProMarkers...
The papers are from MajaDesigns Vintage Summer Basics collection.
The fence in front of the image is a Magnolia DooHicky Die. The white painted leaves are from a Spellbinders set (Foliage). The butterflies, on both in-and outside are made with Martha Stewart punches. The butterfly on the frontside has got a solid layer of glitterstickles in the sticklescolours as close to the papers colours I could find  (cottonCandy and BabyBlue).
I gave the roses a touch of  Diamond Glitterstickles.
All paperedges are lightly distressed, then inked with DistressInk WalnutStain.
Behind the image you can see the cheesecloth.

on this close-up you might see the LiquidPearls (WhiteOpal)

Here's the inside of the card - I used a Martha Stewart PATP-set for the writing panels:

To make the backside of the card I used the same sketch, from Sketchy Colors, as on the front:

A lot of challenges inspired me to make this summercard, 
and helped me decide what to use and how to use it. 
Here they are:
Sketchy Colors - Sketch
Simply Magnolia - Garden Blooms
Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Distressed Challenge
MDUC - Bingo ( Die Cuts/ Cheesecloth/ Tilda/ and Paint/ Pearls/ Lace/Ribbon)
Tilda's Town - Lazy Days of Summer

Card and Scrap - Brug Roser (Use Roses)
Vintage Udfordring - Brug Stempler (Use Stamps)
Creatalicious Challenges - Anything Goes
 Scrappekammeret - SOMMAR! (SUMMER!)
Scrap'a'Long - Sommer (Summer)

I hope I haven't broken too many rules entering the card into all these challenges - I love challenges, but sometimes I mix up the rules... I'm really sorry if I've done it now ;)

Thanks a lot for stopping by, I hope you've liked what you've seen

  16. Thanks for your publication on the vacation industry. I might also like to include that if you're a senior contemplating traveling, it really is absolutely important to buy travel cover for elderly people. When traveling, elderly people are at high risk of getting a health-related emergency. Having the right insurance policy package to your age group can safeguard your health and provide you with peace of mind.

  17. Whats up! I just would like to give a huge thumbs up for the great info you have here on this post. I can be coming back to your blog for more soon.
