End of Summer already!?

LOL, couldn't resist playing around with the title of the image on today's card! It is the gorgeous End of Summer stamp by Mo Manning, isn't this just a gorgeous image, with her little feet and her hair blowing in the summer breeze - I love it! This is the last card I have to show you in my little series with the MME papers and Mo Manning images. I was quite surprised at how well the red gingham ribbon went with these papers. I tried several colours before deciding on this one and I think it really makes the card.

I've coloured the image with distress inks and inked around the edge of the image with spiced marmalade distress ink. I created a layered look with 3 different papers from the range and cardstock punched with MS daisy edge punch.

The large flower and the little flower in the centre are from the Hobby House and I've teamed them with a paper flower punched with my EK success retro flower punch.

I made the sentiment with some more of the alphabet beads from the Hobby House in colours that matched the papers.

Hope you like it and thanks for looking! x
