Bring back summer!

I'm having a great day today, and the sun is shining high in the cloudless blue sky outside! Bring back summer!!! I've made a card with a summery theme, it's for a combination of two challenges. The Penny Black Saturday Challenge this week is "Seasons", I've gone for summer as I thought lots of people will be doing autumn and winter, hence the yellow. I've used one of my fav Penny Black little bears, he's just so versatile. The other challenge is a sketch, #21 by Mumur over at Friday Sketchers, which I think is great as it's not too complicated so didn't take me hours to do. I'll definately use this sketch again, maybe try some Christmas cards with it...

I used:

Penny Black Stamp "Arrangement"
"Merci" stamp from stash
Whispers brush markers to colour image
Papers are from Paper Mill Shop and Paper Mania
Distress Ink (Old Paper) to distress edges
Buttons, flowers, ribbon from stash
