Favourite Season at Crafting by Designs

Hi everyone and a big hello to my new follower Vicki who makes the most wonderful cards, I hope you'll be a regular visitor to my little blog. Here in the UK we know when summer is ending as the programmes on television get much better :D.
The new challenge starting over at Crafting by Designs has the theme of Favourite Season. More about the challenge later on.The card I've made for the challenge is using an image called Aurora 'Summer Breeze' from The East Wind as summer is my favourite Season. Although I don't like heat I do love the long sunny days, blooming flowers and not having to wear jumpers, lol! Here's my card........

A close up shot of the image....

The Sponsor's fabulous prize for this challenge is...

With the strawberries on the papers, die cut strawberries, little white flowers and her auburn hair and dress billowing in the breeze I hope I've captured a little of the essence of the summer season.
