Challenge: Summertime

Hello all and welcome to another challenge! After weeks of non-stop rain here in the UK we are rejoicing in finally having a summer - hooray! Just in time for the Olympics too!!! So to celebrate our challenge this time round is... yep, you guessed it - summertime! We'd like to see a card or other papercraft creation inspired by this fabulous season!

What is a summer's day without an ice cream?! For my sample I headed straight for my Sweet as Can Be set for a tasty treat birthday card, not sure what flavour the Hawai'in Shores scoop is though!

Card details: (all supplies PTI)
Stamps: Sweet As Can Be
Card: Stamper's Select White/Raspberry Fizz/Kraft/Summer sunrise/Hawai'in Shores
Ink: Memento Black
Other: Ric-rac border die

Over to Aimes:

Summertime to me means long happy summer holidays avoiding the 'back to school' signs in shops! Ha! But I also love to see the butterflies dancing around too and that's what inspired this card:

Butterfly Birthday2

I know you don't often see purple butterflies but this was created with a friend in mind who loves the colour! The flourish gives the butterflies movement and lets them dance across the card (well I hope it does anyway as that's what I was going for!)

Caryn is busy with her lovely family this week so I'm afraid can't join us for the challenge. We're looking forward to welcoming her back soon!

So want to see what you could win? One randomly selected winner will be the proud owner of three rolls of brand new PTI ribbon - yummy!

Simply Chartreuse, Melon Berry and Scarlet Jewel

I was thinking of something along the flavour of Blue Curacao - not even sure you can get that flavour ice cream, but I bet it would be nice!
