Papertake Weekly ,,,,,, Hot Hot Hot !!

oohh it is HOT here !! around 35 degree’s C and when you read this I will be trying out our brand new Arriva bus service ,, I am going to Malta for the first time EVER on a bus !!

This week on the Papertake Weekly we are inviting you to get out your red/orange /pinks….

HOT HOT HOT colours and join us.

We are sponsored by our very own teamie Andrea ( and Mary)who will be giving away a fab prize from The Ribbon Girl online store :-)

For my card I used this very cute House Mouse Beach Cooler image, coloured with Copics and I added glossy accents to the sea shells. I made the background paper using my copic air brush, making the clouds using a scalloped spellbinders nestie shape. I used some whitewash coredinations and a couple of cuttlebug folders for the panels and added some ribbon from The Ribbon Girl. The swirl border was made using an EK Success punch and I added a few Robins Nest Dew Drops to finish.

Thanks for looking, the DT have made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the PTW to see them Smile
