June Elemental Inspiration

Hello and I hope you are having a fabulous Friday.
Well its the beginning of June and that means its elemental inspiration challenge time over at Daring Cardmakers.
Such a lovely inspirational picture choice from our host this week, Shabneez.
Remember you need to use at least 3 elements from the image on your card.

For my card the elements that I picked are:
cake, ice lolly/pop, colours, sunset and the box layout.

To create my background I used a water colour brush pen and just swished some colours over the paper.  I used a selection of ink pads from Stampin Up.  I just pressed the ink into the lid of the pad and picked a little up on my brush.

I then used the stitched framelit dies from Stampin Up to create the squares and used the negative space to show my background through.

To create the cupcake and ice lolly I used the sets called Die D-Lites Sweet Set Etched Dies and Die D-Lites Chill Etched Die from Spellbinders.

A sweet and summery card from me this week as its fast approaching the summer holidays and I cant wait to go away with the kids for a break.
Have a great weekend and don't forget to stop by the Design Team Blogs for more lovely inspiration.
