Lazy summer days - Tilda in her Swimsuit

Well she looks ready for summer even if I am definately not - time to buy the fake tan soon I think, as the thought of wearing summer clothes with my winter white body is a fairly horrific thought. At least with my diabetes being out of control recently and having to switch to insulin, has meant that I have dropped some kg so at least ready for summer in that way.

Today's card uses an image from Magnolia called Tilda in her swimsuit.

Base card is white. I have layered Navy Bazzil cardstock onto the base card and then some Laura Ashley turquoise flocked paper after going around the edges with turquoise color box ink pad and securing some cream butterfly organza ribbon around. I then added strip of turquoise Bazzil cardstock to the bottom of the card which I ran through my Big Shot using Cuttlebug Swiss dots folder. Image stamped onto white cardstock using black brilliance and then coloured with Copic markers and went around the edges with turquoise color box ink pad. I then mounted the image onto the card as shown and added some Prima flowers and a metal Imagine word and some white buttons.

Roll on lazy summer days.
