Summertime – It’s Hot, Hot, Hot!!

The weather has been gloriously hot and sunny for most of this week and this card is all about that summer holiday feeling.

The star of the show is the lovely Aurora Maui Maui from The East Wind. I coloured her with my Promarkers and matted onto black card. The leaf print paper and printed postage stamps are from Graphic 45’s Tropical Travelogue collection, and I teamed them with an offcut of bright patterned paper from my scrap box.

I used my Tattered Lace dies to cut some flowers from brightly coloured card, adding a gem to the centres. Finally I stamped the sentiment with a Tim Holtz stamp and matted onto pink card.
