My first GDT card

 Hello every one, I hope you’re all well, some of you may know that I’m a guest designer for Stampin for the weekend in June.
I’m so exited!
Stampin for the weekend post challenges every First Friday and Third/Fourth Friday of the month, which means that the first challenge of the month may run for three weeks instead of two!

 This week the theme is summer or travel and here is my interpretation:

 I used my own lay out. I always use a layout, but this week I just could not find the right one, so this was a real challenge.

 For the first time I used two stamps for this card.
The first is a stamp from the Whiff Of Joy collection and is one of my favourites. She is a young mother who is pregnant!
I coloured her pink and put some golden glitter on the shoes, some silver on her ring.
This stamp makes me think of my mother.

The stamp has the same hair style as my mom.
My mom pregnant with David 4years ago
 A few weeks ago, Friday Sketchers Challenge, turned 2 years old and had a blog hop, I won one of the DT member’s blog prizes which was:

 Three rubber stamps – a boy, girl and a garden chair. I used the stamp of the garden chair for the pregnant mother to sit on.

 Part of the prize was also little butterflies that you cut out and if you want to glitter it and put some gems on

Aud also send me a card with a lovely letter inside.

This is one of the butterflies I won. I placed the butterfly on a yellow, embossed with dots, circle. I glittered the butterfly and put three little gems on.
I also bend the wings a bit so that it looks like a real butterfly.
In the upper right hand corner I made a photo corner with zig-zag paper, in the middle I wrote Celebrate Life and put it on a circle. And I put a flower on the upper left hand corner.

I hope my card inspired you for the summer/travel theme.
Please do pop over to the other Design Member’s blogs to see what they have created for the Stampin for the Weekend challenge.

Don’t forget to link your summer/travel creation on the Stampin for the Weekend Challenge.
I can’t wait to visit your blogs and look at all your beautiful creations.

With this card I also took part in a few other challenges:
