Fun in the Sun!! (If we had any!!)

Fun in the Sun is the theme for our new challenge today at Basic Grey Challenges!!!  Bet we thought we'd be enjoying the nice hot weather in July when that theme was chosen a few months ago!!   Looks like my card is the nearest I'm going to get to any fun or sun for a while! 
I've chosen this glorious new image from Mo Manning and she is just that as she's called Gloria at the Pool.  I used Indian Summer Basic Grey papers as I wanted to create a hot tropical vibe with the colours and papers. 
The sentiment is a new PTI stamp which stamped with Memory Box Bamboo die, the leaves are cut with Marianne dies and the flowers are mostly from Wild Orchid Crafts.

We have our regular sponsor with us - as always the fabulous Simon Says Stamp. and you could win a great $25 dollar voucher to spend with them in their on-line store.
So happy that it's the weekend, although still have this feeling of vertigo, so may go to the Drs next week. Today though I'm going off to look for some shoes for a wedding and tomorrow , I shall be glued to the TV cheering on Andy Murray in the Wimbledon final - go Murray!!!!

Hope that you'll play along with us at BG Challenges over the next fortnight and if you'd like some summery inspiration check out the awesome makes from my BG teamies here!!
Laters!!  ;)
