Summer Florals

Good morning to you, it's Thursday again and that means a new challenge at Willow Sketchie, this week Lisa has chosen the theme 'Summer Florals' and this is my card:

Lisa has also provided us with this fab sketch:

Don't forget - you don't have to follow both the sketch and the theme unless you want to, one or the other will do just fine.  I've sort of followed the sketch and the theme this week.

The images are from the embellishments section on the Polly Pickleberry CD, I have coloured them with ProMarkers and cut them out with a Spellbinders Large Labels Die, full details of everything I have used are listed below.

I have decorated the inside of my card to complement the front:

Card Recipe:

Images:  Willow Designs - Polly Pickleberry CD
Papers: Willow Designs - Polly Pickleberry CD, Bearly Mine Designs - Mini Dots
Card Stock: Dies To Die For - Kraft
Tools: Martha Stewart - Edge Punch, Spellbinders - Large Labels
Embellishments: Seam Binding and flowers from stash
