Outlines - Summer


Good Monday morning!  We are starting a new challenge over on the Outlines blog today.  This week's challenge is Summer - beachy or floral, just something summery with bright fun colors.  For my card I used Sparkle Wheelbarrow (H-805) and Tiny Great Day (AA-863).  I colored the image using Copic markers and added Viva Decor Pearl Pens (Silver, Salmon, Lt. Green, Glitter Liner and Glass Effects)  in various places (click on the photo to see more detail).  I also added a couple of clear Swarovski crystals (Size 16) on either end of the sentiment panel and a bow of pink and turquoise twine.  The patterned papers are from Jillibean Soup's Blossom Soup collection.

The layout for my card comes from this week's Sweet Stop challenge (SSS121).

Please be sure to look up the details for playing along with this week's challenge over at the Outlines blog and also check out the great cards the rest of the team has made:

Robin, this card is darling. The way you took the back ground tag and verse over the edge of the card makes the simiplicity and beauty of the flowers pop.
