Creative Inspirations #65 Summertime - DT card

Good Morning my dears,  I hope you are all enjoying the last day of July!!  Yikes, this year is moving too fast.  Anyhoo! it's time for another wonderful challenge theme over at

This fortnights theme has been chosen by the lovely Debbie and she would like to see all your Summertime Creations.

I've gone with a Summertime Wedding for my card, using sweet Tilda, Edwin and the lovely backdrop of sea, sun and sand. Everything has been coloured with Pro markers and my image has been placed onto my Fleur de lis square spellbinders die.

I used my brand new MS large branch border punch and cut out the vines I needed for the flowers to grow on, which are sweetheart blossoms from Wild Orchid Crafts. The full recipe for my card is below this post.

Our Sponsor this week is Little Claire's Designs. Please pop over to Creative Inspirations to discover what the prize is.

I'll say Ta ta for now but I may see you later. Have a great day everyone.
