Here Comes Summer GDT with Anything Goes Challenge Blog

Woo Hoo Tuesday! 
Again this fortnight I am extremely honored to be playing along with the girls from

And this fortnights challenge is a HOT one that you don't want to miss out on!
Here Comes Summer!

I sure could use a touch of summer here in Oz as we are settling into our winter and it sure is chilly here!  I think that is why I had so much fun making this card and playing with these colors, you can't help but feel all warm and fuzzy inside.  I can only wish to be sitting back or should I say snoozing back in a deck chair beside the pool with this radiating sun beaming down on me!

The Hello Sunshine sentiment is a freebie from Pink Cat Studio Digi Stamps called PCS_Hello Sunshine and once again this week I have been playing with my feathers (so in love with the feel of these at the moment), the flowers in the bottom right corner are metal and from another old and broken necklace and the butterfly is from my rubber stamps (sorry unsure of brand) and I have stamped it onto the card and additionally popped another stamped butterfly on top with some 3D tape to lift it up off the card for some dimension.  

I also have a Candy Winner announcement to make from last fortnights Anything Goes Challenge Blog Hop & Candy - Thank you to all that played along
