Summer Holidays

Hello there!  I'm back with a new challenge from Forever Friends...Summer Holidays!  Sounds good, right? Our sponsor for this challenge is Bugaboo Stamps...I love their images!

The cute turtle is colored with pencils, the umbrella is paper pieced, and the image is cut and layered with Spellbinders dies.  I used a few diecuts for embellishing and added a few Bella Dots too.  The DP is from Jillibean Soup...I love how bright and cheery it is!

Image: Bugaboo Stamps Digital Image
Ink: Printer, Sakura Black Gel Pen, SU! Black Marker
Paper; G.P. 110, PTI New Leaf and Dark Chocolate, and Harvest Gold, Jilliebean Soup DP  
Embellies: Bella Dots, Doodlebug Glitter

I hope you will stop on over at the Forever Friends challenge blog to check out the rest of the DT's "Summer Holidays" cards.  We'd love to have you play along, just remember to include an animal somewhere on your card!
