Crafting For All Seasons - Cute and Summery

This is my card, for Crafting For All Seasons new Challenge.
 
The theme for this fortnight is - Cute and Summery. 

 Betty Boots was my choice! She's brilliant!
 
The image, was from our generous sponsor for this challenge,
 
 
 
The prize for the winner is 3 Digi images.
 
The papers were free from an ancient Mag!!
 
 
 I printed her onto Langton Smooth, 300gsm Watercolour Paper. 

I used Distress Inks to colour her with and really enjoyed it.
She really is adorable and brilliant for the young teen.

The text stamp was from Lily Of The Valley.

 
My super talented Teamies, have some fab art work for you to view
and be inspired from.
So pop over 'here' and experience a 'light bulb' moment!!
 
I had to show you a photo I took today of my Orchid.
My Daughter bought it 4 years ago, for me on Mother's Day.
 
It has 26 flowers on it and I had to get 3 supports for it!!
I noticed this morning, that the flowers at the top, are just starting to go over.
So I grabbed my camera and took a few pics.
It usually sits on the window sill but I couldn't get a decent pic there.
 
 
So off you go and make a card for our challenge and Good Luck!!
 
Thanks for popping in and I love reading the kind words you leave me.
 
Hugs,
Carolxx

Such a super coloured image with those distress inks....and a very pretty card too.
I love your orchid. I have several on my kitchen windowsill too...a white one that was laden with flowers like yours and I had to support it on the food mixer..it became top heavy. We must be doing something right with them. Carol(E)'s and orchids!
