This lovely Sugar Nellie image is called 'Summer'. Apt don't you think?!!!
I got her last year and this is the first time I've used her - (like a lot of my purchases....shhhhh)
The backing papers are from Summer Driggs' 'Flopsicle' collection (did someone mention 'summer' again.....LOL) and i layered them onto dark orange cardstock and stitched them all together.
I coloured 'Summer' with promarkers and used some distress ink for the pale blue sky background - which probably doesn't show up too well in the pic but has given the sky a lovely pale hazy colour.
The ribbon and pearls were from my stash and I am slowly depleting my challenge win flowers!
I used a gold coloured metal butterfly and thought the cocktail umbrella fitted perfectly!
The sentiment was a freebie from Rainbow Echo and I altered the colour using Serif, then cut out with a nestie and used a scalloped nestie to on the rest of the orange cardstock to make a frame.
The inside was co-ordinated using up the rest of the paper and a pearl buckle secured the ribbon scrap.
