Summer for CraftyCardmakers

Afternoon All
It's time for a new challenge over at CCM where Bec is our host looking for anything related to Summer.
I have chosen to make a card with a bright summery background created from a patchwork of hexagons.
I covered a sheet of double sided sticker paper with white punched hexagons which I then stamped and white embossed with butterflies.
I coloured the entire panel with Brushos and added some random background stamping.
Because I wanted the background to remain the focus of the card I used a black die cut floral panel over the top of it and then layered the whole thing onto red card stock.
This card was made with a leftover strip, some co-ordinating background paper and die cut flowers.
I hope that you will join us HERE for our Summer inspired challenge.
Lets hope that the weather continues to reflect our chosen challenge, although maybe if I'm honest perhaps not quite so hot. I do like it bright, don't get me wrong, but I do struggle in this heat.
So happy crafting,
