CLP August Challenge #28

Can you believe that it's already August where has the summer gone! After this heat spell we have been having here in Connecticut I can say that I'm looking forward to fall. We set a new recorded for the most days over 90 in July. But speaking of hot sunny days I choose to use a sunflower color theme on my card this month. I can say that I really love using Brown and Yellow on my cards. It could be because sunflowers are my favorite flower.
Chelsea has another very pretty sketch to work with this month.

Here is my card:

I used Blossom Fairy Lexi from Chelsea's new Gurlee Girls now in her Store. I think Chelsea has some of the cutest Girls for stamps. She has 3 new Girls in the Gurlee Girl Collection. For Blossom I colored her with Copics and glittered her dress. I also used Sparkley Fluff in the centers of her hair bows. I added some 3D Diamond Glaze to the flower she is hiding behind her back. I have hand stitching using one of my soon to be sold patterns, watch for my blog post soon. I have a video showing how it works. Just check out the tab at the top of this post.

The flowers are decorated using one of Bonnie of Sassy Scrapper's flower tutorials. She makes her flowers come alive on her cards and I thank her for sharing her secretes. Check out her blog she has many there.

I used Colorbox Inks and some Peals. I have lots of Stickles all over the card.

I hope you can join us this month. Here is the sketch you have to follow. You can win yourself a $20.00 gift certificate this month to the Gurlee Girl Shop.

Thanks so much for looking at my card this month. Check out all the other very pretty cards the rest of the girls made this month at the CLP Challenge Blog they out did them selves this month.
