Red Hot Summer... the theme for our new challenge at Sweet Stampin', and I must say that for the last few days we have had sunshine and heat..really hope it lasts! I used a wonderful summery image from Delicious Doodles to make my card, she's coloured with copics, with touches of glossy accents on her beads. The sun in the background is made from die cut circles and handcut strips of card and dp. The 'hello' is a Paper Smooches die cut and the 'sunshine' is stamped- haven't a clue where the stamp came from, or who made it! I'm off now to enjoy the book and chair are calling to me!
Thanks for visiting, have a fabulous weekend.
