Summer Thank You

This weeks Timeless Tuesday challenge is for a Summer theme with sheer ribbon.  Well, it took me a while to get in the mood for this one, as it's just coming into Winter here in Australia!!  However, Flourishes Summer Blossom stamp set came to the rescue and I stamped the same image five times with Memento ink onto blending card and die cut two of them with Spellbinders Classic Ovals.  While the card was still in the oval die, I coloured the background with BG10 and all the rest with the copics listed below.  Then I die cut a piece of  Cherry Cobler (Stampin' Up!) with a larger oval and layered the image piece onto it.  The background papers are from On The Sunny Side paper pad (My Mind's Eye) layered onto the Cherry Cobler cardstock.  I cut out the centre flower from two of the other images and added them with foam tape to the oval piece and then cut out the two flowers and leaves and added them to the bottom left corner with foam tape.  The sentiment is also from the Summer Blossom set.  Finally I added some white organza ribbon and bow.

Copic Colours used were:  Y21, Y35, Y38, R22, R24, R89, E33, E27, C1, C3 and G82, G46 desaturated with C1.

Thanks so much for visiting!
