Get your sunglasses out!

Time flies, and I have another card.  Again I have used a lovely Sarah Kay image, Spring is Back, but I think it evokes summer  with her pretty suntop.  However, I am slightly out of my comfort zone with the colours I have chosen, just because I wanted to use these lovely MME Market Street papers.  I have sparyed the papers with Glimmer Mist Irridescent Gold to give a summery shimmer.

Cute Card Thursday have a sketch to follow, which has been put together by the very talented Claudia.

I have coloured with Copics.  The ribbon across the middle is from stash, and I have used flowers from Wild Orchid crafts - which I seem to have gone over the top on!  These have been edged with Stickles.  The pearls are from stash.

I am entering this card for the following challenges:

Cute Card Thursday #117 - followed the sketch above
Paper Sundaes Challenge #23 - Pretty as a Princess
Meljens Designs #12 - Fibre, ribbon or lace - I have used ribbon
Totally Gorjuss Challenge #35 - Sugar and Spice
Charisma Card Challenge #24 - All about bling
