Dreaming of Summer ...

This is the card I have made for the CD Sunday Challenge this week, the theme is 'Forever in Blue Jeans' .  Well this one was a bit of a challenge again, most of the images I have had been used by the DT ladies so I was desperately searching through my CD's when I remembered this fab little image from the Crafter's Companion S.W.A.L.K. collection.

She really makes me yearn for warm summer days, especially as I'm looking out of the window at the remains of last weeks snow which still refuses to melt.

The CD element on this card is the backing papers, they are from the S.W.A.L.K. Papercrafting CD-ROM 2.  My base card stock is Stardream from Joanna Sheen and the sentiment is LOTV.

I have followed the sketch from Seize the Birthday a relatively new Sketch Challenge that I have only just discovered and I have decorated the inside of my card to match the front.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

The CD Sunday Challenge - Forever in Blue Jeans
Seize the Birthday Challenge - Feminine Birthday with Sketch #3
Dream Valley Challenge 49 - Girls, Girls, Girls
ABC Challenge 13 - Birthday Cards
Creative Card Crew Challenge 28 - Girly
Nutcrafters Challenge 35 - Cute and Girly
Paper Crafting Journey Challenge - For a Girl
Willow Sketchie Challenge - Sketch and/or Happy Birthday

Thank you for visiting me today, I appreciate your company.

This is a lovely card Pauline, I love the SWALK range and you've made a gorgeous card with this image.

I didn't think I had anything suitable for the challenge this week - didn't think to look at SWALK!

We've had lots more snow here, it had just cleared yesterday afternoon and then we had really heavy snowfall and everywhere is now well and truly covered.
