Summer Dreams


This is my first post in awhile. I decided to take a little break. It has been so hot here that you just do not feel like doing anything. I'm wishing for fall to get here now just so we can get a break from the heat. Everyday in July was 100 or above and August is starting out the same way.

This cutie is from Make It Crafty. The image is Summer Dreams and she looks like she might be daydreaming. I colored her with Copic Sketch markers (E00, E01, E11, E35, E57, R20, Y23, Y26, YR02, YR04, YR09). The CS is Recollections from Michaels and the DP is Basic Grey's Marrakech. I used the Spellbinder Nestabilities Beaded Oval and Oval die cuts. The sentiment is punched out with the Oval and Scalloped Oval punches from Stampin Up. The embossing folder is from Sizzix and the ribbon is from Stampin Up.

I plan to enter this card in these challenges:
