Stamp Something - Summer in Winter

Good morning, Friday again (thank goodness) and a whole weekend of clearing up after the builders is what I have to look forward to :o( but I am sure I can get my butt in gear and manage to get a little time to play with my beloved crafty stash too.
So it is time for a new challenge from us all at Stamp Something . With all this cold weather what better idea than to think ahead to warmer days .... so we would love to see your ideas of

Summer in Winter



I have used this beautiful Sarah Kay image kindly sent to me by Tracie a couple of weeks ago. She is just so gorgeous with her little picnic basket and bunch of hand picked flowers. I loved colouring her and have tried to concentrate a bit more on shading my image, something I hope to get better with over the coming weeks.
Very simple layout and I actually had the courage to stamp my sentiment straight onto the yummy BG papers - something I wouldn't normally do. I am now wondering how on earth I used to manage without BG - no turning back for me now!!



Remember to check out Stamp Something's blog for further details of this weeks challenge and to see the rest of the DT's fabulous cards.
Sarah Kay coloured with Prismas, BG papers from two scoops pack, studio g sentiment, flowers from poppicrafts, lace, brad and charm from stash
