Summer Posies

Good Morning! 

Today's card will be entered into several Challenges;

MFT, Sketch
Simon Says Monday, Summer (Posies, Designer Papers And Colors Used)
Dies R Us, Stars & Stripes (Striped DP, Star Sick Pin, MFT Blueprints #12 Dies)
Mod Squad, Pattern Paper (Echo Park, Summer)
Simon Says Wednesday We're Going Dotty (Swiss Dots Embossing Folder)

My sweet little girl image and sentiment is by My Favorite Things, Pure Innocence, I Pick You.  Isn't she so cute standing there offering you her pretty little summer bouquet?  I wanted to make you feel the flavor of summer by using these bright, bold, happy, summer colors.  They remind me of lemonade and watermelon, 2 of summer's delights!

While my sweet girl is hand cut, the dies I used are also from My Favorite Things, Blueprints #12, this die set has so many wonderful dies, all very versatile, circles, banners, flags, flowers, leaves, etc.  Images colored with Copic Markers and accented with Sakura Glaze & Glitter Pens.  Melon Mambo Ink.  Swiss Dots Embossing Folder.  Sheer Ribbon, Pink Ribbon Bow and White Star Stick Pin to jazz it up a bit.  I also added a little circle of Vellum to the circle die cut, adds a bit of mystery.  And a few dotted stars to the inside border. 
Thanks so much for coming by. 
Today kicks off the long Holiday Weekend.....mine starts at about noon today, after work.
