Ode To Summer.....

I think this year has been the best summer in absolutely ages!
Lots of lovely swimming weather along with enough rainy days to keep our tanks ticking over without the water tanker being called on. 

So as a little homage to the gorgeous summer I have created this card using the sketch from Sketch Saturday 


The image is from All Dressed Up and the papers are Stella & Rose - Mabel by My Minds Eye.
I cut the sentiment on my silhouette.  The image is coloured with Promarkers which I just picked up for a bargain from a lady on a colouring group on FB.

Thanks loads for dropping by to see my summery card.



Along with the sketch challenge mentioned in my post  I would also like to enter the following challenges...
Passion for Promarkers - Luscious Locks
Crafting with friends - Anything goes
Brown Sugar Challenge- Anything Goes
