Summer Inspired

 
Happy Sunday.  Can't believe that June is almost over and we are into summer holidays here with a long weekend, the kids being out of school and loving the warm weather. 
I wanted today's card to reflect the feel of summer with it's colours and the images of the flowers.  I am playing along with the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast.  All the stamps I am creating with today are from Penny Black. 
 
I began my card by die cutting a circle to use as a mask for my main circle image.  I masked my paper then stamped the Mosaic flowers, die cut the circle and coloured with Copic markers. 
The main panel is stenciled on an angle for interest using Distress ink.  I added the sentiment from the Friendship Flowers set and pop dotted my circle to the card front. 
 
Also adding my card to these challenges:
 
Simon Says- ANYTHING GOES
  
 
Addicted to Stamps- ANYTHING GOES
 
 
Sister Act- ANYTHING GOES
 
 
 
Hope you can enjoy a wonderful summer's day.  Thanks so very much for popping by and taking a look.
 
Supplies:  stamps- Penny Black/ Copic markers/ Memento bl ink/ Distress ink/ stencil/ pop dots/ Spellbinder circle die
