Summer Mojito's!

Here we are, half way through another week! Doesn't time fly?

Today this is the card I've made

I first stamped the sprigs of leaves and the lattice, and then added the sentiment over it. I then stamped the flowers, fussy cut them out, and arranged them over the leaves. One of the yellow flowers was laid on 3D pads, and the finishing touches were the mini gems in the centre of the flowers and 3 scattered around the lattice.

I am entering these challenges :

Retro Sketches have this sketch,

Less is More have this colour palette (and Happy Birthday to Sarah)


Inkspirational want us to use 

and lastly, Addicted to Stamps have

Supplies :
Card - Lucky Limeade, Whisper White, and base FMS
Stamps - Summer Silhouettes and Simply Sketched
Inks - Basic Black, Smoky Slate, Gumball Green, Lucky Limeade, Bermuda Bay, and Hello Honey
Tools - Stamp-a-ma-jig
Extras - 3D Pads and mini Gems 

During my hectic day with Nathan and Sophie yesterday, they made these cards using my Big Shot ( or "Magic Rolling Machine" as Nathan calls it ) for their Nana's birthday. They chose everything themselves, their colours, die cuts, and layouts.

Thanks for dropping by, and please call back again soon
