Summer Silhouette

Good morning crafters...

Today is Monday and means its time for another challenge over at make my Monday if you would like to join in this weeks challenge which is inspired by a book cover check it out: and if you would like to play along click on the picture below to go straight to the blog...

Here's my card:

I was inspired by so many things the colours, the butterflies and the flowers so decided to include it all...
I've masked off my sun with my 1" circle punch from a post it note, then sponged bashful blue for my sky and lucky limeade for grass, leaving a hint of white between.

Here's a closer look

I've stamped everything in black to give a silhouette effect... Funny considering the name of the stamp set i used...

You all must of noticed my love of butterfly's... So I couldn't resist adding one on Todays card could i, punched from the cute Itty bitty butterfly punch, then finished with some sparkle....

What ive used:
Stamp sets - sentiment field flowers, Summer Silhouettes, Papillion Potpourri 
Card Stock - basic black, white
Ink - lucky limeade, basic black, summer Starfruit and Bashful blue
Punches - Itty bitty butterfly and scallop trim border punch, 1" circle punch for sun
