It is summetime at The Outlawz

Hello my blogging friends.
I have just seen that it is a week since my last posting...I can't believe it, but I have been  "mega" busy, so no wonder the time has just flown by.

OK, so this week for the Colour challenge at The Outlawz, the lovely inspirational photo was chosen by Roxann with the twist...make it summery, and of course we have had lovely almost summery weather the last few weeks, but yesterday winter decided to put it's foot through the door and it has been rather chilly.

Our sponsor this month is Sandi's Samples and I have used the lovely 'Sunflowers' from Sandi...this will brighten any winter's day.

The DT have made some lovely cards to inspire you, so head on over and see what they have created.  We would really love you to come and join us with a summertime creation.

Here is my card and this is what I have used.

Image - Sunflowers by Sandi, coloured with Distress inks and added a touch of glitter to the flower centres and leaves - doesn't show up much on the photo.
Cut it out with a Nestability die and shaded round the flowers while still in the die with Pan Pastels.

Paper - DP..Noor design, condolence paper bloc.
Cut a larger die and ran that through the CB with an embossing folder and then coloured it with a dark grey  Pan Pastel.

Put a ribbon under the two die cuts and added a bow, with some pearls.

Sentiment stamped onto the DP is from Whiff of Joy.

Will enter in the following challenges:
Artistic Inspirations challenge #92...Anything goes with punches or dies
Craft-dee Bowz challenge ...Anything goes with a handmade bow
Crafting from the Heart #19...Anything goes

This is a lovely card. The bow adds elegance and really brightens up the card. I am partial to gray, so I love that you used it. The dies and image are great too. Thanks for joining LTSCB this time around.
