Summer Girl

As you can see by the blog title, I got summer on my mind.  It is a beautiful warm day today and it makes me think of the coming summer months.  So, I decided to use Mo Manning's image Summer Girl.  Love those sunglasses.  Here is a close-up of Summer Girl.

I used glossy accents on her glasses and also Wink of Stella in clear to add some sparkle and shine.  But it is not noticeable in the picture.  I also used it on the ice cream bar.  My cardstock base and mats are SU Rose Red and my designer paper is from MME Indie Chic 6x6 paper pad.  My sentiment is from Digital Delights Keeping in Touch Sentiment set.  I used SU Circle punches to cut out my sentiment and mat.  My doily is English Tea Party Doily by Cheery Lynn Designs.  I embossed the front panel with a large dot embossing folder from Cuttlebug.  And my flower is MFT Die-namics Perfect Petals die cut.  The burlap, twine and button is from my stash.

Copic Sketch Markers Used:
C3, E000, E00, E01, E31, E33, E35, E50, E51, E53, R22, R81, R83, R85, Y11, Y13, YR21

What a brilliantly fun, bright and summery card. The image is adorable, and it's great how you have done the glass in the glasses. Great mix of papers and shapes, and the diecut elements are lovely.
