Here comes Summer!

Hi Everyone

Firstly I must apologize to anyone reading this who hasn't seen the sun for a while, but here in Colorado it has been gorgeous - so I felt a summer card coming on, and here it is.

I recently bought this little paper pack 'Sunny Side' (by Pebbles) and thought that it would go perfectly with this images from Saturated Canary called 'Smokin' Hot'.  I used the print and cut feature on my Cameo to cut out the image within a circle, and then coloured her with ProMarkers.

The flowers in the the bottom lower left are made with a die from Elizabeth Craft Designs (there is a great tutorial for making flowers with this type of die here.)

The sentiment is just cut out from one of the sheets of paper in the pack.

The pennant/banner I also made with my Cameo, cut from a file from the Silhouette online store and I drew the letters on using a Silhouette sketch pen and the Lettering Delight Thin Font called 'Tall Girl'.

I plan on entering this card into the following challenges:

  1. 4 Crafty Chicks - Flowers
  2. Delightful Challenges - Here Comes The Sun
  3. Dutch Dare Card Challenge - Summer's coming
  4. Shelly's Images - Beach theme (Summer)
