Summertime at FOR FUN!

Yes folks, we want to celebrate the fact that we are finally seeing some sunshine! Our theme this week is an either/or/or both! challenge; we want to see SUMMERTIME FUN with bright colours, especially pink, blue, green, yellow and purple!

Our sponsor this week is the sassy Nana Vic who has given us this fabby prize for one lucky winner.

Here's my DT card:

If I am honest, I struggled with this one! I found the array of different colours trickier to work with, but we all need to work outside our comfort zone every once in a while to develop so I'm not complaining.

The image is of course one of Nana Vic's and I've used a quote from Mae West as my senti ; 'You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough!' My DPs I've had for ages, are Dovecraft Glamour Prints, and I've hardly used them (probably because of the colour combo!) I added a few pearls and gems and the beautiful purple flower (top left) was made for me by the lovely Ms Leesa (aka The Navy Wife,) a fellow DT member over at THE CRAFTY PAD.

I used a 6"x6" scalloped card base and matted/layered on various coloured cardstock.

I do hope you will join us this week for our SUMMERTIME challenge, its always great to see your creations, especially when its such a fun theme!

I am entering a couple of challenges with my card:
