c4e sketch #40 Hot Hot Hot!!!!

This week on the C4E challenge blog we are asking you use the sketch to make cards with hot summer colours! Hop over HERE to see the sketch and gorgeous DT cards.
I really enjoyed making this card!! lol!! I don't normally use orange but loved the overall finish of this one.

The PP is a new paper in at C4E from Fancy Pants Summer soiree collection, it's called Glimmer and with lots of glitter glue it really does glimmer now!! lol The green paper is also summer soiree paper, as is the ribbon.
The image is one of the first set of Gorjuss girls coloured with pencils and dotted with glitter glue.

The flowers are the made with the Autumn leaves stamp from the C4E July kit and a Daisy bucket stamp from the July crop kit. I have stamped onto the glimmer paper twice cut out the 1st one along the outside line, the 2nd one on the inner flower shape, then stamped the small stitched daisy onto the green PP and cut out. I've used a brown stazon inkpad for the stamping. Then pinched the petals of the 2 large flowers and used an embossing tool in the centre of the small flower to give them some shape. Attached the flowers with adhesive and finished with a little button, and glitter glue!

The butterfly is an Autumn leaves stamp. I stamped onto the glimmer paper cut out and shaped the wings with a boning tool. Again added lots of glitter glue.

The final result is a very hot twinkly card!! lol
