Another outing for the new stamp set from Stampin Up Dandelion Wishes - I can't put it down at the moment.  This card combines two challenges - a colour challenge from Fab Friday and a summer embossing challenge from TGIF.  These are the colours we were to use from Fab Friday- I had all of them bar Mint Macaron - I know I had an ink in this colour but it's disappeared.  I did have some ribbon left though.

I started off my card by using the Tim Hotlz blending tool to blend some Mossy Meadow on to white cardstock.  Inspired by the image for the TGIF challenge I used the sun from Kinda Eclectic and using Powder Pink I clear embossed it. It gives off a lovely sheen to the card.  My PP ink is very dry and it sometimes needs a helping hand from Versamark to help it show up.  I used Tranquil Tide stamped off for the dandelion stamps.  The sentiment is from Jar of Love and this was inked in Tranquil Tide but not stamped off so it's a bit darker.  Some coloured rhinestones in the daffodils finishes off the card.  I hope it looks summery enough for the challenge.  We are certainly experiencing hot weather here in the UK and melting - it's even too hot to craft especially when you take into account our homes do not have air-con!

What we need is a good summer thunderstorm to water all the gardens and cool us down.  I never thought I'd hear myself say we needed rain lol!

The dandelions are in full swing in my neck of the woods! This is lovely and soft and so fun to see a dandelion card not use yellow! THe jewels in the centers are a nice accent too! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!
