Summer fun over at A Spoonful of Sugar!

(Please scroll down for my TLT DT post)

 This week's challenge over at A Spoonful of Sugar is here comes summer!  So anything summery - images, colours - it's your interpretation!  Here is my card...

 
 

I went for a fresh summery colours - quite the opposite for our current summer in the UK right now!!  I used Garden Mae from Some Odd Girl.  I also paper pieced her top and scarf.  I think the papers were a freebie from a mag, Pink Petticoat perhaps (grey matter is going!!)I used My Favorite Things flower die (from Dies to Die For here), label die (here) and the sentiment is from the polka dot sentiment set (here). 

Anyway, if anyone has any sun, can you puuurrrlease send some over to the UK?!!  Thanks for visiting!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, free Pink Petticoat papers
Stamps: 
Garden Mae from Some Odd Girl, My Favorite Things polka dot sentiment set (here)
Mediums: Copics
Accents: gingham ribbon from stash, Dew Drops, Bazzill floss
Tools: Sizzix embossing folder, Martha Stewart border punch, My Favorite Things flower die (from Dies to Die For here), label die (here), Nestabilities label die inside card
