Here Comes Summer at the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today sees the next fabulous challenge at the

The theme this week was chosen by our very talented teamie Bridget, and she chose the theme of

Here Comes Summer

Here is what I created for my design team inspirational piece using an image from Grimsby Crafts by Faye Wittaker called "All Our Yesterdays sailing boat"
This is another 21" square grand card, using a pale blue base layer and contrast, utilizing the grand circle and grand circle scallop, a Go Kreate shaped die cut in half with the edge punched with an MS daisy edge punch.  The papers are Papermania Mono Collection and the ribbon is from a local department store.  The pearls on this creation are from the Hobby House.
The flowers are from a selection of places and the leaves are nestie die cuts.
The image is coloured in copics which are available from the Secret Crafter

Don't forget to hop on over to the main blog to see all the other wonderful creations by my talented teamies.
