Summer breeze

wow - its a hot one today - would you believe i still tried to complete my scheduled run - it turned into more of a power walk - then a walk - then an amble! A bit rubbish but it was just too hot!!!!

Still I've got a summery enchanted card to share with you today:

Its an 8x8 inch card and all of the papers came free with the current papercrafts essentials magazine. The stamps are all lavinia stamps and the die I used to cut the butterfly was spellbinders. I've coloured the fairy skin and highlighted her around the edge using promarkers - the dress and hat were done using paper piecing. The sketch is one I followed from over on the docrafts website (current enchanted challenge).

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

sweetstampinchallengeblog: Fairies and angels
A-Z creativity challenge - P is for pink and paper piecing
Tuesday Alchemytuesdayalchemy: Beautiful Butterflies
Enchanted challenge at do crafts
Use diecuts at ilovepromarkers
Happy Birthday at promarkerchallenge: a passion for promarkers.

Hope you're not too hot and manage to get more time to do some crafting in the shade over the rest of the day!

Enjoy yourselves!

Hugs Rachel xx
