Celebrating Challenges!

Very excited to help Claire over at
Waltzing Mouse
celebrate their new sketch challenge.

I don't do sketch challenges all that often,
but if they continue to be THIS fun,
that will definitely change!

I used a variety of DP from DCWV's
'Flower Shower' pack.
I used the Martha Deco punch for my borders
and fabby Debbie Mumm ribbon runs through
my die cut buckle, which was originally silver.
I stained it with 'worn lipstick' distress ink
from Tim Holtz.  White pearls for just a
little 'white' touch.  The sentiment is
from Hero Arts.

This was a great Tuesday Trigger from
Moxie Fab as well....

These popsicles SCREAM SUMMER!
This card focuses on those summertime color 'flavors'
which were totally inspiring!

I am supporting a variety of other challenges
as well as this card ended up being very versatile.

Hope you will stop by these challenge sites
