Summer Girl...

Howdy folks...hope you are all well on this sunny day!!

Well this post was half scheduled and half not...I was on a high after my friend and I went to see The Eagles in was amazing and although they have been on the go forever...they can sing live even in their 60's!!  The only thing was strictly no photography etc...which was a wee shame cos I would have loved to have been able to get a sneaky photo but there was no chance as Security were all over it!!

So, anyway...I finished my post and here we have my card for Papertake Weekly Challenge...yay that's right I was asked if I would like to have a wee guest spot...of course I said yes.

The theme is "anything goes" with the option of something summery.

For my card I have used papers from Echo Park - Sunny Side, I stitched the layers onto bazzill card, the image is Summer Girl from Mo Manning which I coloured with my new spectrum noirs (it's all Lis's fault, she made me buy them)which I am getting used to but I am liking them and I then added some stickles to the ice lolly and the shades. I did some shading with polychromos. The sun has been made with a daisy die and I just snipped the ends off and attached a die cut button, I added pearls to the corners and added a big daisy and ribbon and finished with the stamped sentiment from CC Designs which I thought was perfect....hope you likey!!
