A Little Summer Lovin' (2 challenges in 1)

When I saw the color challenge at Cupcake Craft Challenges it immediately made me think of Summer.
And then I saw the theme challenge at Scrappy Frogs and knew I could combine the two.



I used another Miss Anya image this time from the Rain, Snow, Shine collection.
I colored her with my Copic's and used papers from another older DCWV Summer Stack.
I stamped her on my Nesties Label 4 and matted her on a larger Nestie that I embossed with one of the new Quickutz Embossing folders.I added Prima flowers with fabric brads for the centers.
The Summer ribbon is from last year's $1 spot at Target and the sentiment is from Making Memories also from Target. I used the Fiskars Threading Water border punch as it reminds me of waves.



The inside has some more tropical style paper to round off the Summer theme.
It makes me feel like it must soon be time for a fruity cocktail, oops did I say that outloud? LOL
Have a Happy Saturday
Katie
