Well with all the blooming rain we are having in the UK it’s about time we had some sunshine so this challenge is probably the only way we will get some unless you are going abroad for your holidays….

I have used an image called Pook Girl 1 by Pookie Designs for this challenge. I chose to make a monochromatic card in only shades of yell and using white as a neutral. Yellow is one for my favourite colours so I set to work using my beloved Promarkers & Flexmarkers in various shades of sunshine J

I haven’t made an easel card for ages and thought this would be a lovely way to use this image. All the patterned papers are from the Family Ties First Edition pad by Dovecraft. The main paper is a glittery damask pattern and I used a co-ordinating gingham pattern as I felt it would emulate the top of the dress. The darker yellow has been recycled from a glossy brochure from a recruitment agency that I have had in my stash for years.

The sentiment is a freebie from Gingers House and I used a nestabilities die to to cut it and the larger mats. I inked around the edges of the larger mat to define the shape better. I used my lovely flourish die from Cheery Lynn. I love how you can manipulate the swirls as in the front of the card, but then can snip it into shapes as for the inside. The flowers are Primas and I have added lots of twinkly gem centres.
