I am Fashionista's Guest Designer this week

After coming in the top 5 over at Fashionista the other week with my anniversary card for my Dad and Step mum Brenda, they very kindly asked me to be a guest designer for one of their challenges - Summer Fun
Thank you very much for asking me, I feel very honoured!

This is the card I made especially for the challenge

I have used a XXL Go Kreate Frilly Square #2 die to create the base card and then I cut the designer patterned paper (using the next size down die) and stuck to the card before cutting and scoring to create the stepper card.

The image is from Lili of the Valley,  the sentiment circle is also from Lili of the valley and is a clear stamp which I inked in silver, it says dreaming of summer days. I cut the circle and scalloped circle with Spellbinders dies and the square behind the image with a Spellbinders scalloped square die and added silver circle peel offs in the centre of each scallop.

I have used a Cheery Lynn flourish die and made the flowers using a Die-namics flower die set and also used my Cheery Lynn butterfly dies.
