Moving Along With The Times 'Summer' Challenge

Good morning all. 
It is lovely to have you pop by to see today's card especially with the children in the UK being on school holidays and with the Olympics on the tv, so thank you. 

This week at Moving Along With The Times we have another challenge for you and Sue set us the challenge of 'Summer' with this week being sponsored by The Crafty Pad who gave us some fabulous images to use, I have used 'Butterflies & Verse'. As you can see not my normal style of card but I had great fun creating this one.

6" Card Blank - Boyes
Card Stock - Paper Mill Shop
Medium - Promarkers & Flexmarkers
Dies - Spellbinders 'Edgeabilities Insert's 6' & Cheery Lynn 'Waltzing Matilda'
Gems - Anita's Gem Wheel

Promarker & Flexmarkers Used:-
Large Butterfly - Duck Egg, Surf Blue & Cool Aqua
Small Butterfly - Mandarin & Mango

Challenges I would like to enter:- 
Fetch A Sketch - Sketch
Inky Impressions - Embossing
Scrapbook Sisters - Things With Wings

I will be back to add some more challenges when I get a minute, I seem to be chasing my tail at the moment plus we have workmen here this morning to insulate the loft and add cavity to the walls so it is a little manic to say the least.
