Summer is Coming (hopefully!!!!!!!)

Hi everyone, its Friday again and that means another challenge over at Phindys Place and this week the theme is
Summer is Coming
so we would love to see all your creations inspired by summer.  Hopefully here in the UK that will help us all to feel a bit warmer!!! lol...
I have used Tender Tootsies and coloured her with copics.
The papers are a Papermania Capsule Collection that I have had for ages.  I have used my sewing machine for all the stitching.  The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley and the butterflies are a Martha Stewart Punch.





So why not come and join in our fun Challenge.  You dont need to use a Phindy Image but we love it when you do.......

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - Fab Sketch
Delightful Sketches - Add Ribbon
Little Miss Muffet Challenge - Anything Goes
Scrapbook Sisters - Two Colours
Truly Scrumptious - Anything Goes
LEJ Designs - Lots of Layers
