Looking forward to Summer :)

I made a card last night for some challenges. After a Christmas theme last time, I thought I'd go summer with this card! :)
It's been an awful Spring this year, with a terrible weather, just a several warm Sunny days and only rain, rain, rain... It's cloudy and cold today, again, thankfully it's not raining at the moment, but those ugly grey clouds that I can see through the window are simply working against us... :(
I can't wait for those hot summer days now, I used to complain about our summer temperatures here (sometimes over 40C), but I look forward to them now, I just ask for a bit of Sun! Is that too much!? :)

Anyway, I'm entering the following challenges: Belles 'n Whistles (you know how I adore these stamps) have started with the challenges on their own BnW blog now and this is their first Belles 'n Whistles challenge - they want us to "create a project incorporating D.I.Y. Flowers", which is , I believe to create our own flowers.
Cupcake Craft challenge has the theme - "Summer Delights''
Papertake Weekly, with the theme - "Fun, fun, fun..."
Everybody Art challenge, the theme is "Summer"
Stamp with Stampavie and more, the theme is also - "Summer"
Timbroscrapmania challenge has the theme - "Rosa Fashion", I do have a bit of green, too on my card, but I think pink dominates
A Spoon Full of Sugar challenge with the theme - "Celebrations"
and Lili of the Valley challenge - I followed the sketch.

For this card I used another stamp from the Belles 'n Whistles Spring/Clean/Summer collection (I won the whole release, if you remember), I adore this beautiful image! The papers are My Mind Eye - "Bloom and Grow" and just like the brads I used, they came from here. The sentiment is Whiff of Joy. I also used one of my border punches and a corner punch, too and the ribbons are from stash.

The image was coloured with watercolour pencils.

I made the flower with some pieces of pink cardstock, I distressed the edges with a distress ink pad and put a brad in the centre.

This is the sketch at the Lili of the Valley challenge:

I also want to say that I was the lucky winner of Michelle's amazing blog candy!! How awesome! Thank you so much Michelle, I look forward to receiving it! :)
