Lazy hazy days of summer

This is my card for this month's Sir Stampalot Challenge blog. The theme of the challenge was 'Lazy hazy days of summer'. And this is why I chose the little girl image stamp as to me its sums up the theme of the challenge.

This little girl image is from a set of stamps called 'Flowers girls' by Pergamano. She was stamped with Memento ink pad and coloured in with ProMarkers. I added highlight to the image with Sakura pens. I also added various colours of Stickles. I used Nestabilities to cut out the image and frame.

I cut a square of summery design patterned paper the same size as my card blank. I punched a strip of white card using a Martha Stewart Trellis punch. I threaded rainbow ribbon through the trellis and also attached the strip across the paper. I also tied a bow of the same ribbon. Using double sided tape I attached the paper, ribbon and trellis to the card blank.

The flowers and leaves were punched from various colours of card. I used a Quickie Glue pen to layer up the flower and attached them all the the card. The centres of all the flowers are gold Dimension Pearls. I finished the card by attaching a circle greeting by Craftwork Cards.
