Summery Challenges!

Lots of challenges out there with the summertime theme. So, once again I have made a summer card. This is Sonny - Life is a Beach from Pollycraft Stamps. She is all packed with her towel, hat and sunglasses and ready for the beach. I colored her with Copic Sketch markers (BG01, BG05, BG07, BG70, BG72, E00, E01, E42, E35, E50, E51, E53, G14, Y21, Y23, and YR04) and Copic Spica pen in Peach. The CS is Stampin Up and the DP is My Mine's Eye - Stella Rose - Hattie Papers. I used Spellbinder Nestabilities in Oval and Scalloped Oval. I also used a couple of lace punches by Martha Stewart Crafts. The sentiment is by Whimsy Stamps and is punched out with Stampin Up punches and inked with Baja Breeze, also from Stampin Up. The flowers are punched out with punches from the Punch Bunch. The center of flowers are metal accents by Colorbok.

I plan to enter this card in these challenges:
