***This card made the Top 5 at The Pink Elephant***
Hope your Wednesday is off to a good start. It's raining here again, big surprise! It's been one soggy summer so far and my fingers and toes are crossed for some sunshine!
Many of the challenges this week are all about summer and since we are in drastic need of it here, it's the perfect theme! Here's my Summer Time Friends card....
I received this adorable image from my friend Jo as a birthday gift. I think it says summer for sure! I love the sweet little snail and turtle and since it has been raining almost everyday for a month, the little flower umbrella is perfect! The image has been colored with Copics and then I added some Stickles for shimmer. I also had a few bubble stickers to make the raindrops look a little more realistic.
The layout is from the sketch challenge at Inspirational Sketch Challenges, which I flipped around. The colors are SU! Pink Pirouette, Certainly Celery, and So Saffron cardstock with some retired designer papers. I chose these colors to fit with the challenge at Simon Says Stamp, which was lemon, pink, orange, and apple green. And as pink and green are just one of my favorite color combos, this also fits the challenge at The Pink Elephant. The final embellishments are some ribbons, a clip, flower and button, and a rhinestone brad.
This card fits the summer/summertime challenges at A Spoon Full of Sugar, Cupcake Craft, and Everybody Art Challenge. I think that covers all the challenges! Phewww, that's a bunch!
Hope you all enjoy the rest of your day. See you again tomorrow! Happy Stamping! :)
