Summer's arrived

and it's getting hot.
I have stocked up on reading material...the bottom of Terry's wardrobe is now full of bags of books.
It can actually get too hot to craft as you end up sticking to all the paper etc. When this happens I usually end up reading for most of the day...and taking long siestas!!
However I persevered today and this little red number is what I came up with.

Card Details:
Sugar Nellies image coloured with my ProMarkers.
Red and white card embossed using Big Shot and Cuttlebug Folder.
The Middle was cut with Nesties and a Marianne Creatable.
The ribbon, lace, butterfly, pearls and flowers are from my stash.

I would like to enter this card into the following Challenges:
Catch the Bug- Pearls and Lace.
Crafts 4 Eternity- Colour Recipe..Red, White and Green.
Digi Doodle Shop's Best- No Backing paper.
Woodware USA Clear Stamps- Happy Birthday.
