Sending You Sunshine

I managed to get my penultimate assignment finished for my course yesterday that was due in by 12pm today so I had a bit more time for crafting this morning! YAY! I only have one assignment left to go to the end of this painful course, but it's a biggie! 7000 words! Guess what I'll be doing over my summer holidays?! It's due in at the beginning of September, just as I go back to school!

Anyway on to one of my cards for today...This card is for All Dressed Up's Challenge #18 to use the sketch below, for Color Throwdown's Challenge #302 to use this fun, bright colour combo, for Creative Inspiration's Challenge #275 Here Comes Summer and Papertake Weekly's Challenge to make a holiday card - I guess summer counts as a holiday right?!


And here's my card using one of the gorgeous Little Summer Girls digis. I had to make my own background paper for some of the layers as for some unknown reason I have no Bermuda Bay patterned papers. Must sort that out before I drop my demonstratorship.
