Summer Days !


Wow, summer days are here and going fast. I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend. It was just so hot and dry here that you really didn't want to get out. June is gone and we are headed toward the middle of July fast.

So, I had to get in another card. This is a digi image from Phindy's Place. She is having a good summer day with that chocolate ice cream. I used Copic Sketch markers to color her (E00, E01, E21, E35, R20, R81, R83, R85, RV00, Y13, Y15, Y21, Y23). I used a sketch from A Gem of a Challenge. The CS is Stampin Up and the DP is from Dream Street Papers and Imaginisce Garden Party Collection. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps and is inked up with Early Expresso and punched out with a scalloped oval punch by Stampin Up. I used Craft Concepts In Bloom embossing folder and Spellbinder Nestabilities Oval and Scalloped Oval die cuts. The flowers and pearls are by Prima.

I plan to enter this card in these challenges:
