Try it on Tuesday Guest Designer: Here Comes Summer

Hello and welcome! I don't usually post on Tuesdays but a couple of months ago I was invited to be a guest designer at the Try it on Tuesday challenge and today I get to show you my card made for their theme of "Here comes the Summer" which starts today and runs for 2 weeks.

This is another scheduled post so hopefully blogger behaves and posts as planned.

I thought this cute hedgie by Penny Black (Lazy Days) was a perfect choice as a focal point. It has been quite some time since I last used this stamp. He's been colored with Zig Clean Color markers and Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. His parasol was stamped again on patterned paper from my stash then fussy cut.

After coloring I added some sun rays using a stencil by Vicki Boutin then stamped the flowers from the Aall and Create set Hexapetalistic. The main sentiment is an oldie from Whimsy Stamps and the sentiment stamped in blue is from the set Foliage by Aall and create. Before adding the summer sentiment I adhered a banner (cut by hand so it's not perfect) using the same patterned paper I used for the flower parasol. To complete the card I added the butterflies (made with the Penny Black die Soaring).
