Summer Sun

That's the theme this week at One Stitch At A Time so we want to see your bright, sunny colours and summery images. :)
 
My card features Hope Jacare's Bowl of Strawberries - and what could be a more summery image than a bowl of strawberries? It conjures images of sunny days, Pimms and Wimbledon. :)
 
 
I coloured the image with my Promarkers in sunny reds and greens and added highlights with a white gel pen.
 
 
I decorated my card with bright yellow and green papers and warm red cardstock, using a Sizzix Framelits die to cut the ornate frame. This die is a recent acquisition and I just love it - can't stop using it! :lol:
 
I attached the image on foam tape for a bit of added dimension and finished things off with some layered flowers...
 
 
...and layered butterflies (using my favourite and much, much, much-used Beautiful Wings embosslit die from Stampin' Up!):
 
 
You can enter the challenge using any products you like but if you enter using a Stitchy Bear product you will be entered into the draw to win our top prize of 3 Promarkers from our sponsor Creative Craft World. Entries not using a Stitchy Bear product have the chance to win a $3 gift voucher for the Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet.
 
I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
