Simply Summer

Hi Sugar fans, I'm back with a little Sunday inspiration! Feels like my mojo has been missing these past few weeks (maybe off to hotter climes ;o)) but I'm quite happy with this card :D! It's a "Goodbye to Summer" card, as the nights are getting colder, the days shorter and the sun...well, the less said about that the better!

I received the new set the other day and boy oh boy are you in for a treat! Start saving them pennies ladies (and gents ;o)) because you're sure to want them all!

Anyway, back to my card for today, I hadn't really used this sweetie properly yet so here she is, butterflies and all. No sentiment because I couldn't find the stamp I wanted (something about flutterin' by just to say hi ;o)), which is my cue to go tidy up my craft room I suppose... I chose to colour her in shades of brown because I don't have Copics to match the blue of the paper. You make do don't you, and this works as well ;o)

Simply Sassy "Butterflies and Pigtails
Paper: Bazzill Basics cardstock kraft, vanilla; Prima Marketing paper "Botanical Garden"
