Summer Fun at Cupcake Craftroom

Good morning everyone

I hope you are all well. I have managed to come down with a head cold so I am feeling very sorry for myself at the moment, with a sore nose!  

I have had some very good news though. I have been selected to join the Digi Bells as a Guest Designer!  I am very excited and can't wait to get started.  

OK back to business for today which is a brand new challenge at Cupcake Craftroom.  Mandy has a brand new release of papers called Last Summer which are a fabulous collection of papers in fresh, zingy colours perfect for your summer cards and projects. 

We have a photo for inspiration for you this month and here is my make using the new papers:

I have used the Bright Blue, Popsicles and Picnic from the paper collection for my card. I love the bright fresh colours.  The image is of course from Krista at Saturated Canary and she is called Beach Baby. I just added some ribbon and embellishments from my stash.  I also added some sand flower soft on the sand.  

I hope you can join in this month, don't be shy!  Hop over to the challenge blog and check out the inspiration from the DT girls.  

Have a great day and I will see you soon.
