Summer Birthdays at Craft-Room

Wow – we’ve made it to challenge three already over at Craft-Room ! Thanks so much to all who’ve been playing along. Our next challenge was set by Mervi – who , like me has a summer birthday, so chose this as our theme.      I decided to make some bunting as my DT sample – it always makes me think of summer fetes and garden parties! Armed with some pastel paper and my die cutting machine this is what I did - SD532449
SD532437I really struggled to get good pics because, unlike our theme there is nothing summery about the weather here and everywhere is a bit gloomy…still hopefully you get the idea. 
SD532438I stitched the edges of the bunting and stamped some text for detail, then added die cut shapes, glitter and sequins  (notice the ‘deliberate’ mistake - I added the sequins after taking these individual pics as I thought it needed a little ‘something’) .

So, I hope you find some summery inspiration and join in with our challenge – I look forward to browsing and hopefully all your projects will cheer us up despite the cloudy weather.  Edited To Add - since writing this post the weather has been the hotest we've had in a long time, should be careful what I wish for!

I’m entering my Bunting into challenges at -
Totally Papercraft – spots and stripes (on the balloons)
Crafters Companion – Here comes Summer
