Sir Stampalot July Challenge - Lazy Hazy Days of Summer

A very good morning to you!

It is time for another Sir Stampalot challenge. We were overwhelmed by the number of entries last month and hope you enjoy this month's theme just as much, which is

"LAZY, HAZY DAYS OF SUMMER"

To make my card I brayered Big and Juicy “Soothing Sunset” onto a piece of glossy white cardstock and stamped around it with Hero Arts “Leaf Flourish F5042”. I matted this onto a black card base and then I brayered a smaller piece of glossy white cardstock and stamped this with an Inkadinkado wood backed stamp (unfortunately I don’t know the name or number of this stamp). I cut this out with a large label nestability and layered it onto a large scalloped rectangle nestability cut from black card. I stamped the butterflies onto glossy card and sponged ink onto them. The large butterfly is from the Elusive Images “Butterfly Poppy” plate and the small butterfly is from the Crafty Individuals sheet “CI-226”, finally I cut out the butterflies and stuck them onto the card.
Our challenge sponsors, Sir Stampalot, have come up with another fabulous prize and, of course we will choose a top three along with the winner, but please do check out the rules to make sure your entry is eligible for the prize.

Hugs, Clare xx
