A Prickly Summer Cacti Card

Hello everyone,  this week has been very busy with hospital appointments for my OH but I managed  a few hours in the craft room today.   

I made this last minute card for this week's Daring Cardmakers Challenge which is "A Prickly Summer",  Miri is hosting the challenge and wants you to use one or more cacti on your card.  It was a bit late to add my card to the Daring Cardmakers blog but here it is.  Pop over for more details of the challenge and to see the design team inspirational cards.

A Sizzix die/stamp set, a photo frame die and papermilldirect card were used.  The cacti was stamped, die cut and coloured with Polychromo pencils.  The photo frame was attached to a piece of leaf stamped card from my bits box and then the cacti added to the frame.  I stamped the small cacti onto a piece of card and coloured the odd cacti this was matted onto a card blank and the embossed card and cacti frame added to this.  The sentiments were added to finish.

Thank you for your kind comments last week, I am finding a little more time for myself and hope to spend more time in my craft room and visiting your blogs and facebook posts.
