The sun's out!

Summer is trying to appear!

And as it just so happens, the theme this week at Glitter n Sparkle, is:
'summer sunshine.'
Here is my card...

I used "Crazy cat lady" digi image from Cute As A Button,
coloured carefully with my promarkers. 
I have to say - the background was a real labour of love. 
It took me so long to make it!
I cut and coloured the little hill separately, with my promarkers
and used lots of scraps of different yellow papers, plain and patterned.
I cut each one on my trimmer and inked the edges, then faux-stitched around 
all edges with a yellow fineliner.
The flowers are diecuts from memory box.
I stuck them all down and trimmed the edges to create the sunshine background.
I haven't decided on who this is going too yet, so have not added a sentiment yet.
