Today’s card is inspired by the challenge themes of Friendship and Summertime. My card design is based on this months sketch from CLP

I have combined the beautiful Prima Fairy Flora papers with some gorgeous Guipure lace. The image used is Tilda With Bicycle from Magnolia.The addition of some lovely cream paper flowers, that I have coloured with Copics to match my papers, will see my card complete

This is what I came up with:

tilda with Bicycle card

My cream paper flowers have been lightly coloured with R000, R01 and R20 in keeping with the challenge set by CMC this week to use embellishments coloured with Copics. The hint of colour complements my DSP perfectly.

Tilda is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Copic Express card and coloured with Copic Sketch markers. The Copics used are as follows: skin: E11, E00, E000, R20 hair, shoes and basket: E35, YR24, YR21, YR20 clothes: BG10, BG000, BG0000, RV 01, RV00, RV000, Y000 bike and flowers: W2, W0, W00, C1, C3, C00, G00, G000, Y000, Y11
