Hi lovely bloggers - hope you are enjoying the summer sunshine, wherever you are. 
Can't believe that two weeks have passed by since the last DU2DS Challenge. There were lots of fabulous entries, and I'm sure you will all love this fortnight's summery theme too - Blooms and Butterflies! 
If you click on the DU2DS link above, you will find full challenge details, and some inspiration from the DT.
The beautiful image on my DT card is "Love Flutterby" from Phindy's Place, coloured with Copics and distress ink around the edges. Some simples punched flowers (with dewdrop centres) and butterflies, an MS punched border and a little wonky machine stitching.
If you pop over to Sketching Stamper you will find lots of beautiful digi images including some fab. flowers (and look out for the brand new Doggie - awwwww)!
Look forward to seeing all your lovely creations.
Love and hugs, Sylvia xxxxxxxxx

Your card is so sweet and pretty, it has a really delicate feel to it. And a lovely touch how you have made the flowers coming up the side.
