Challenge #32 - Summer or Winter


It's December 1st and time for a new challenge at The Squirrel and The Fox where we'd like to see your summer or winter themed paper crafting projects. Here in America we are entering the winter season and the days are getting colder in my neck of the woods so I opted for a summer card to warm me up. ;) The sunflower is a favorite of mine and this image provided by Robyn's Fetish was a pleasure to create with. Be sure to check out what the design team made to inspire you using more of Robyn's wonderful images by visiting the challenge blog or by clicking their links on my right sidebar.

For sketch inspiration I played along with this fun sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday by Arlana Patten.

  Prize is winner's choice of 5 digital stamps.
Have Fun Crafting Everyone!

A beautiful card Lisa! I adore sunflowers and this is so pretty with the yellow polka-dot paper. The stitching accents you added are a perfect touch too. So glad you could play along with us this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday!

Your papers are perfect for that wonderful sunflower image! I love your thinking on bypassing the wintry projects to warm you up! It was a gloomy chilly day here and I would have loved to see a sunflower blooming!
