Sunny Days

Good morning all!
Happy Monday to you.
I'm full of the joys today because the sun is shining & I'm not in work all week.
As it's the Edinburgh Festival & Fringe this month,
we've taken some leave to join in the fun!
Anyhoo, as it's Monday, it's time for the new challenge over at
Eureka Stamps where the theme for this week is

The images I have chosen to work with are
I decided if the sun was shining, the colours needed to be bright & cheerful.
I found a piece of paper in my scraps box, (it's from La Pashe), with just
the colours I was looking for!
I found a lovely piece of cardstock to match the pink & took it from there.
The images were coloured using my promarkers
The sentiment was done on my pc in DJB The Cheerleader font.
I cut the fishtails by hand. I used spellbinders dies to cut my ovals & a 
Martha Stewart punch for the butterfly.
The little pearls have been kicking about my stash forever!

I had great fun making this card & I love how it turned out.
I did actually intend to colour the pom poms & perhaps add a little glitter
But hey ho, I forgot I've decided she looks fine as she is so she'll stay that way.
I hope you can play along in the challenge
