Zesty Summer Colours!

Yes, it's me again with another challenge post! As it's Friday it's time for a new challenge at Totally Papercrafts - and it's a very scary week this week as it's ME that's the challenge host! So do join in and show me some support lol!  The sponsors this week are

and the winner will receive 6 digi stamps!

Now I know that for many of us here in the UK we haven't had much of a summer - but I thought I'd pick a theme with colours to brighten us up - so the challenge is to use 'Zesty Summer Colours'! We want to see bright summer colours on your design, so think of juicy lemon, tangy lime, zesty orange, hot pink, etc.!  The Design Team have produced some fantastic samples as always - so do pop over to the Totally Papercrafts challenge and have a look - and then get crafting!

My contribution for this one is

I've used a gorgeous Sylvia Zet digi stamp 'Peggy' - isn't she gorgeous! I've coloured her with promarkers & pencils 

And it's definitely bright! The backing papers are lovely freebies I got with a magazine - and were just right for this challenge! I've used a Tonic border punch and pearls and white satin ribbon from stash. The spotty ribbon is from Joanna Sheen. The sentiment is from LOTV and the flowers are from CardCraftUK with leaves from WOC. 
Hope you like the zesty colours! 
Back soon, Kim x
