Summer Fun

Today sees the start of a new Challenge over at Delightful Challenges.  The theme this week is:

SUMMER FUN

This also coincides with a brand new release at Digital Delights and Wendy has come up trumps with this fabulous new collection!  Here is my card:


I had so much fun doing this and working with Wendy's gorgeous Hula Halina.  The palm tree, sun and flowers were all from the Luau Accessories Set.  I have used the Luau Paper Pack for my papers and digitally placed the Sea and Sand paper on top of the Sand Stripe paper and then digitally put on the Stay Cool Sentiment which is from the Luau Sentiments. I have coloured the images with Copics.  I have added gems to the flower's proboscis and also around the image.  The butterfly is cut from Dienamics Die and loads of Stickles added.  I have made the Easel card using my Grand Nesties. You can get these lovely images here at Digital Delights.  We are sponsored this week by:


Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Please pop over to Delightful Challenges to see what the rest of the talented DT have made with the new images from Wendy.

Hopefully this post will have posted ok as I am scheduling it on Tuesday.  Hope everyone is ok and I will be back tomorrow, thanks for looking and take care xx
