Days of Summer

It's a sunny Summer day at The Roses on Paper Challenge Blog! That's right, this is challenge 16, and fellow DT member Iris, has chosen our theme... to create a Summer/Vacation card. I love summer, just not the heat that it brings. These are the times we all turn our air conditioners on and the electric bill is bigger. Anyway, here is my card.
This is Barefoot Tilda enjoying the sun and the flowers at her feet. The more I look at this card, I get the feeling that it is very hot out there for her and maybe I should have given her a tree for some shade.. LOL! I used my copic airbrush system to create the sunny background, added some flowersoft for the flowers at her feet, and some shimmerz to her wings.
Here's a better pic of all the details. I've also used my Martha Stewart punch as an accessory and decoration. I really enjoyed this challenge and hope that you will participate in it too!
I have also made this card for the Old Magnolia Challenge blog. This is the stamp that was chosen for the week.
Although a couple of people have already been chosen as a guest designer for Belles n' Whistles, there will definitely be more opportunities for you to try again. Follow the blog for the next call, and more exciting details to coming very very soon!!
I'd like to introduce someone new to blogland! We've only met via email, she lives on the same island as I do, and we have still yet to meet in person!! Vina finally took the plunge into the blog world and you can check her out HERE. Stop on over and give her some luv!
Many many thanks for your sweet comments and for sharing your day with me!!
