Summer Fun

I was asked to make a card for a 14-year-old girl.  I would have loved to get a card like this when I was 14!  I'd already coloured the image when I found these unused message die-cuts in my stash (while I was looking for something else).  Hey, Darnell, I've done a NBUS!

The colours were inspired by this gorgeous photo at Pinspired:

And Simon Says Anything Goes is still open where you can win a Simon Says voucher or this card candi package from Craftwork Cards:


I didn't use card candi but I did use the message die cut and the shaped card from craftwork Cards.  The image is Penny Black 2163K Love.  If you look really closely you can see tiny self-adhesive AB gems in the centre of the flowers.


  1. This is fantastic and perfect for a teen! Love the bright colours and the fun shape!

  2. What a fun image and I love how you have used the washi! Thanks for playing along with the Anything Goes Challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog this week!

  3. Such a happy, smile inducing card, Shirley ... perfect for a 14 year old girl! I looked closely ... those wee blings are perfect! Anita :)

  4. Hi Shirley. Such a great image ... love the bright colors. And love ripped washi tape corners - awesome! Loll xx

  5. Absolutely, undeniably perfect for a 14-year-old girl! You come up with the BEST CARDS, Shirley!! And I'm applauding, in between typing words, your use of NBUS!! (It's hard, lemme tell you. Like patting your head with one hand and rubbing your tummy with the other!) Thank you!!
