Summer Card Camp 2011


I was lucky enough to win a spot in Jennifer McGuire and Kristina Warner's Summer Card Camp from Shari's blog.  It's a month long camp full off wonderful inspiration.   Our first week's inspirational colours are Purple, Pink, Orange, Sky Blue and White....  I am so pleased to be able to join this camp as it's all about colours, something I struggle with, so I'm hoping for some good inspiration.  I really find it hard to combine colours but here's my first card for the week
Butterfly fun

I started by using some orange card to punch out a lacy border.  Then I took some sky blue card and stamped the flourish background in blue and purple distress inks.  I then distressed around the edge with the blue and purple.  I had some pre-coloured butterflies in my stash ~ conveniently in pink, purple and orange.  I just had to add the sentiment to finish the card.

I did have lots of fun, trying to think what I would do... did lots of doodling and sketching so have lots of ideas.

Got the new car this afternoon.... it is FABULOUS.  What a wonderful smell of new car leather.  Can't wait for the weekend so we can take it out for a blat.... and I can get some good photo of it to share....  Can you tell I'm a bit excited!!!l

Have a good week... I'm off to check out Day 2 of the camp...

Cheers

Dawn
