A summer challenge

Hello lovely people,

How wonderful to see some sunshine here today; perfect timing for our Summer Special Challenge Event at  LOTV!

We are having our first Facebook challenge and want to see all your Summer themed cards and projects using LOTV products.

We have some amazing prizes for you too...

For our hand picked top 3;
1st prize: £50 LOTV voucher
2nd prize: £25 LOTV voucher
3rd prize: £10 Ribbon Girl voucher

AND 3 x £20 LOTV vouchers for 3 randomly selected entrants

To enter, you need to like the LOTV facebook page, click to join the Summer Special Challenge Event and add a photo of your creation to that event page.

If the sunshine isn't enough inspiration for you here's my Summer inspired card...

Here are the gorgeous little bears in close up...

As usual I have made a large pull out tag to write a personal message on.
I used the border die to create the little tab at the top.

I have used my fave combo of pretty flowers and swirls to decorate the corner.
