Here Comes Summer

Here comes summer is the theme of this week's challenge at Crafty CardmakersWhen I think of summer I think about the beautiful colours of all of the flowers and the butterflies . I have used alcohol inks in several colours on my background and then added a die that reminds me of my parents fence when I was growing up.  The butterflies also were coloured with Alcohol inks and  a white gell pen. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week.  Remember to stop by our challenge blog and be inspired by the creative works of our design team and join in our challenge.
