Summer Brights

Hello again, today we begin a new challenge at Make My Monday.
Sian has chosen Summer Brights.
The Design Team have again made some wonderful cards, 
please pop over and check them out.
I have used several Distress Inks to create the background.
I love this stamp from Inkylicious - Poppy Lea, which has been
exdtended though you can't tell where it was joined up.
I coloured the flowers with my new Leonie Sparkle Pens.
there is a lot of glitter shining on the card, though it never shows 
when photographed, such a shame. 
The sentiment is by Crafter's Companion.
