TPLC02 - Shades of Sunshine

Hello Everyone! Back so soon! Here is my card for The Paperlane Challenge - TPLC02 Shades of Sunshine. I have got to confess to absolute panic when I got this brief! Lol! I just don't 'do' yellow - which my brain said was the colours I needed!
So, after raking through the DP that sits beside my desk, I found the delicious Echo Park Springtime papers that just work so well with, you guessed it.....Bazzill Kraft cardstock!! Lol! (If anyone wonders why they can't get hold of any of this is because I have got it all!! Love it!!!) Seriously though, Caz stocks this wonderful stuff at The Paperlane.

I have opted to not use a character stamp today, which is unusual for me! I have chosen the lovely flowers from the Summer Fun collection. They are really cute, and look lovely coloured. The layout is really simple as I wanted the colour to be the standout thing on the card, rather that the layout and embellishments.
Here is a close up of the detail of the stamps. The flowers have been stamped and coloured the twice so that they would stand out. The image has been coloured with Copic markers, and the frames are all Nesties! Like I asked in this post yesterday, would you like to see the Copics that have been used for each image? If you think it would be useful, please let me know in the comments....I'm not sure if there might be enough 'out there' if you know what I mean!

The lace effects down the side are both Martha Stewart border punches, which I picked up at The Paperlane. They are really delicate and break up space nicely, with small touches of Viva Decor Pearl Pen, and pearls hand coloured with Copics to match the DP. The sentiment is from Hero Arts, one of a 'go to' set that I have had for a while!

Hope you like what you see! Look forward to seeing all of your entries!

Back Soon! Kx
