Crafty Ann's Challenge #20 - DT card

         

Time again for a new Crafty Ann Challenge -   and the challenge this time is


Lazy Hazy Days of Summer
 Anything that to you says summer.

The image on my card is a photo I took of one of the roses in my garden and means Summer to me. 
When these are in full bloom I know that summer is really here, whatever the weather, lol.

I have framed it in one of Ann's digi frames which I printed on to some Polished Stone digi paper. I coloured the bow with a pink copic to match the digi rose. I added an extra layer to the rose bud and leaves so it is nicely dimensional although it doesn't show in the pic.

The main BP is Mottled Stone.
I have not decided on a sentiment  yet,  though I will probably send it to a friend who loves her garden is quite poorly at the moment.



I made a tulle bow and layered it over the coloured bow and have added a small rose to the centre.



Frame - Ann's digi
BP's - Polished Stone and Mottled Stone - all available at Ann's Digi Shop

I love this Irene, it's so soft and gentle and romantic. I love the tulle and tiny rose over the printed one, it's a great effect. The way you've used the rosebud is gorgeous too - the colours all work so beautifully together.
