Summer Flowers

This card was made for the Penny Black 'Summer Flowers' challenge and I used the sketch from this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge.  I'm also entering the Seize the Birthday 'Anything Goes' challenge.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk 
Stamps: Penny Black 'Awakening', Hobby Art 'General Greetings'
Die: Memory Box 'Wicker Panel'
Punch: Woodware square
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Colouring: Faber-Castell pencils
Card: Green and white moondust card

I die-cut a wicker panel and attached it to the bottom of the card using Spray Mount.  The image was stamped onto white card and I added a hint of colour with the coloured pencils.   This was trimmed to size, layered onto green card and attached to the card front with foam tape.   The sentiment was stamped onto white card, trimmed to a strip and I used a square punch to make the fish tail - this was then attached to the card with foam tape.

I'm late to the party here Kath and still playing holiday catch up but had to take a closer peek at this glorious card, a fav PB stamp of mine as well.

Many thanks for joining in at Penny Black and More challenge this month.
