Anything Goes/Summer Colours

Welcome everyone to our latest challenge which is "Anything Goes/Summer Colours". I have just seen the fantastic winner of the "Time or Travel" challenge. Well done Trace (InkyPinkyCraft)'s a stunner!! Thanks to you all for entering and sharing your wonderful creations. And I am looking forward to sitting down later to look through the Bling it On entries.

Most of us have had a rather dismal summer so far, very dreich as we say here in Scotland. So I am looking forward to seeing lots of lovely hot summer colours in your entries for this challenge to brighten us up!! You can make anything you like as long as you use summer colours.

I will kick off with a card using one stamp for my focal image and my background.  You have two weeks to enter and remember there is a £10 voucher for the winner!!
