A Summer Cycle anyone?

Wow! What a gorgeous day we had yesterday! Such a stunner of a day that I even managed to get some sunbathing done! The summer afternoon even inspired me to get in the garage and have a clear out, so a whole car load of Keiran's clothes and old toys...I feel extremely cleansed lol!

Anyway, I also have a beautiful card to show you today, definitely inspired by the lovely weather!

The stamp is the Hostess set Summer Afternoon and  have coloured it with my Stampin' Write Markers. It's a lovely image and can you believe this is the first time I've used it??

I trimmed the bottom of the card with the Adorning Accents Edgelits, then trimmed again and added the extra piece as a detail. If you look very carefully, you can see that I have been playing with a new toy! I got the Colour Spritzer Tool recently so I gave it a go for the first time! I used the Lucky Limeade Marker, which has left a very subtle speckled effect of the base card.
I finished with some Marina Mist Taffeta Ribbon and Twitterpated Designer Series Paper inside the card...pretty huh? :)
