Lazy Afternoon

Morning crafters , hope your all ok ,lots of bad things in the news lately, tornadoes and a soldier stabbed in broad day light , just terrible. The weather is rubbish here in the UK , we had hailstones here 3 times yesterday , really cold and blowing a gale.
At least my card captures a glimpse of Summer. The image is lazy afternoon by Lili of the valley. He looks so peaceful lying outdoors, I've coloured with pro and flex markers in mostly shades of blue, I adore duck egg blue . The papers are a mixed bunch , DCWV for the stripes and first edition for the spots. The sentiment was cut from a 12x12 sheet by year o graph called "life snippets ". The star brad and ribbon memory box , old stash.

challenges entered:

lilies little fairies :spots and stripes
Allsorts : true blue
craft ribbons : anything goes with ribbon
charisma cards : here comes Summer

enjoy your day and the long-weekend (if your in the UK) the weather for Saturday and Sunday are suppose to be quite nice!

Love that image - beautifully coloured as ever - and a great card design.
Sun's out here at the moment - not sure for how long but it's nice and warm so I'm not complaining.

I haven't got any Lili of the valley images, but they're on my wish list - they've got such sweet boy images, and this is one of my favorites! I like the clean layout with the decorative ribbon and circle shaped sentiment!
