Summer Fun Birthday Card

Good afternoon everyone, how are you all today? The weather seems to have cheered up again so I hope you are all out enjoying it. As for me I am stuck indoors, doped up on pain medication and trying to ignore the agony that is going on in my back again.

I have a card to share with you today that I made at the weekend using another of my new Elisabeth Bell stamps, this one is called 'Big Splash'. I did something with this that I never do and that is I coloured the image before choosing any papers or embellishments. I love how it came out using these primary colours.

6" Square Card Blank - Natalie & Amy's
Card Stock - Bazzill
Designer Papers - Papermania 'Happy Days'
Brads - Stash

Hair - Buttercup, Eggnog & Daffodil Bloom
Shorts - Chilli Red, Poppy & Lipstick Red
