Using the gorgeous rich dark violet card I made a jewellery presentation box, this beautiful colour shows off the beautiful hand made glass beads a treat (hand made glass beads made by my son).  The box was cut on the Silouhette and decorated with a silver embossed swirl and silver ribbon.

Summer fun with daffodil yellow, ocean blue, raspberry pink, lime green and dark violet.  A Prima Doll was stamped, paper pieced and fussy cut before adding to this bright summery card, the sentiment, sun and doll are from the Prima Marketing "Sunshine" set.

Retirement deckchair card and special day butterflies using a selection of colours, deckchair a free stamp and the special day sentiment from Crafter's Companion Sentiment Swirls set.

Last of all lime green and ocean blue to go with my Stitchy Bear Digi frog.  I coloured this image last month and though he needed a matching lime green and ocean blue background.  Promarkers were used to colour the image which was printed onto Papermilldirect white linen card, although my colouring wobbled a bit on froggy's arms I love this image and just had to use him.

So there we are, lots of ways to use the Summer Sale colours, why not visit the rest of the design team and see what they came up with.

All very striking and cheerful. Love the jewellery box best though, it's so elegant. The ribbon bow threaded through has great appeal. The beads look awesome too!
