Here comes the sun - or does it?

I've picked bright summer colours for today's card and I'm hoping the weather will follow suit, at the moment the sun is shining but it's raining too.  This card uses some lovely new Flower Doodledallions from Fred She Said, which have a choice of sentiments for the centres as well as a blank.  I've followed quite an unusual sketch from Truly Scrumptious which uses eyelets.  Now I always shy away from eyelets when I can, so this was a great sketch to make me reach for the eyelts and the hammer, which also fits this weeks Shopping Our Stash, where the challenge is to use neglected tools of the trade.

My flower is coloured with Copics and lots of Glossy Accents.  The DPs are Stampin' Up, Artylicious and Basic Grey, I've used a MS bubbles punch, gems and lots of stitching.  Oh, the ribbon is coloured with Copics too.  Hope the sun shines wherever you are today.

My card is for the following challenges:
Shopping Our Stash - tools of the trade
Truly Scrumptious - sketch
Papertake Weekly - here comes the sun
CRAFT - stitching
Annabelle's Stamps - yellow, orange, turquoise
