A Summer Sundress for a Wonderful Wednesday

Summer Sundress for Wonderful Wednesday1

Hello all.  Happy Wednesday!

The weather here where I live in the South West(ish) of Great Britain has been heart liftingly glorious for the past few days.  The sky is a blended mix of the palest duck egg right through to the deepest, diaphanous turquoise.  The sea is the most incredible blue and picks up the colour of the sky and changes it into a water representation of the same thing.  The sun glinted off the ripples of the water in such a way that it looked like a gazillion diamonds were floating across the sea and the sun was catching the diamond cuts, making them dazzling.  So dazzling that I had to keep looking away because it was so bright.

I am so blessed to be living where I do.

This fabulous weather made me think that I should be doing something summery today – so I decided upon a summery dress card.

The dress is made from the exact same print as the paper I used on the front of the card (and part of the inside) – but the dress print paper is in a much smaller scale.  I turned the dress into a ‘spinner’.  This means that it’s hung on a strand of thick cotton thread, and you can actually touch the dress and make it spin back and forth.

Of course … I had to make the inside pretty too …

The ‘things’ which look like buttons down the side are Candi Dots, fixed with teeny tiny foam pads.  (They’re on the front of the card too – along the top and bottom).  The fancy die cut edge (and the one on inner crease) were made using a Spellbinders die.

This card made me feel like I wanted to get my pretty sundress on and go for a picnic in the park.  Hope you like the card. 

So .. what’s the weather like where you are? 

Have a blessed rest of your day all.  ~

    • Aw thanks Beverly, glad you like it.

      I’m not really a summer heat loving person. If it’s really hot it makes me feel like a limp lettuce – good for nothing. My favourite seasons are Spring and Autumn. I love Spring for the fabulous new colours; the earth and nature waking up; and watching lambs in the fields. And the colours of Autumn are so overwhelmingly beautiful, that they take my breath away.

      We live on such an incredible planet! It blows my mind.
