Sew much for summer!

Well I don't know where that lovely summery weather we've been having has gone - it started raining late on Sunday and hasn't stopped since! I'm sure it's good for the garden but that's about all. It's Owen's prom tonight and I was looking forward to getting some great pics of him and his friends heading off in their limo but if the weather doesn't brighten up I don't think we'll get much of a photo op!
Anyway I have a card to share today, not done too much cardmaking in the last 10 days or so what with visitors, visiting and sewing taking up much of my time. I have been making some felt and fabric brooches as well as the sock toys and hope to sell some at an event at the weekend.

This card was made for the Pear Tree Designs challenge who have a sketch to follow this week. I have used my brand new LOTV stamp 'On Tiptoe' and used Promarkers to colour the image. Crafty Cardmakers have challenged crafters to use their most and least favourite colours this week so my slightly unusual combo consists of my favourite (at the moment) Duck Egg Blue and Red which I normally only use at Christmas!

My card is also good for the following challenges:
Craftalicious - New (my stamp)
Cupcake Craft - Dazzle Us
Pink Elephant - Red, Scallops & a Bow
Quirky Crafts - Girly Girl

Hi Jenni
Very pretty card.
It's an unusual colour combo but it really works well the red just pops out. I'd love to see some pics of the brooches too.
Good luck with the sale!
