Summer Sizzler

This month I am so pleased to be producing a project for Country View Challenges as I was lucky enough to receive the Design Team's Special Mention Award.
When I was given the title of the challenge 'Summer Sizzler', I immediately thought of a summer holiday and also hot coloured summer flowers, hence my Suitcase Full of Blooms.

I began by making my suitcase using a new Bigz Pro die in Kraft card which I distressed.

I always wanted a suitcase full of labels from exotic places and so decided to make my own.  I stamped my images and for the authentic touch, ran them through the Zyron to turn them into labels.

My flowers are a mixture of some stamped images, some metal and some fabric flowers.

Let's hope we get an English Sizzling summer otherwise I shall just have to be content with my garden and my hot flowers,
