Dilly Beans Summertime Challenge

Today I'm going to show you my second ever 'Dilly Beans' card. Last week I made a black and white 8x8" card and showed it on the blog entering it into the Dilly Beans Challenge.... Well, I won!!! I got the first place and am loving my wee prize - thank you Dilly Beans!

This week's challenge is entitled Summertime and can be found here.

For this challenge, I have used Dilly Beans image #444 Desi Framed and coloured her with promarkers. I have gone with browns and lilacs to match the flowery, summery paper that I decided to use.

My paper is a Dolly Mixtures pad from Craftwork Cards and I've used a frame and sentiments from them too. I used my x-cut posey flower die to cut layered flowers from some of the papers and used die cut banners as tags on the side of the image.

Here's a close up of my colouring - I feel like after a week or so of playing about with the pens i'm definately getting better, working out how to blend and which colours work together... I still have a limited palatte but working on that!!!

I am entering this card into the following challenges -
Dilly Beans - Summertime
Through the Craftroom Door - anything goes
Created with Love Challenges - anything goes.
Left of Center - 2 or more designer papers. 

Thanks for looking!
