Summer colours

Afternoon everyone

I hope your all OK? Well here in Milton Keynes the sun is trying to come out, you wouldn't know its nearly July if you looked outside.
So I thought I would make a card using some nice summer colours using my fab Spectrum Noir pen. The colours I used are:

Hair- GB6 (brights), GB7 (brights), GB8 (brown)
Dress- CT2,CT3,CT4 (yellows)
Skin- FS2,FS3 (skin) FS5 (pastels)

I used some Coredinations and some gold card Ive had for a while. The papers are from a my mind's eye 12x12 paper pad. Which I have to say I love, it has some really great papers in the pad with lots of different size dots on the papers.

I also used my new Sew Robbin tool by We are memory keepers that I got from Crafter's Companion   website. To add the ribbon to the card. I think it gives a nice detail to the card. I must save my pennies to get the other ones.

The flower that is on the card I made using my fab silhouette cameo . I'm getting used to using it now. But I must start to use it more to make things to put on my cards and to make box's and bags for my jewellery making which I have just taken up. Which I must say I am really loving. There are just so many great beads out there to use.

Well that's all from me for now, I hope you have a lovely weekend and lets hope the weather changes.
