Fun in the Sun

Good morning friends,
I do hope you had a lovely weekend, whether celebrating in the USA, just enjoying lovely summer weather or even some crispy days in the winter area.


It is Tuesday again and that means another Colour challenge at The Outlawz. This week my teamie Heather has chosen this beautiful photo for us to use as inspiration. There are so many lovely colours and ideas to use for this week.


The sponsor for our challenges this month is Stitchy Bear Stamps and the DT have each used one of their images to make some beautiful cards. I do hope you will pop in and view these lovely creations.

For my card I have used the image Fun in the Sun, as this beautiful photo makes me think of holiday, relaxing and having fun.


I used the following:



Paper: Coloured the card with Distress inks for a background. Then cut  patterned paper with a Marianne die and cut the image with a die from the same set.

The image was coloured with Distress inkapds, added glossy accents for the sunglasses.

The sentiment is from Country Crafts and mounted on a flower diecut.



Will enter this in some challenges:


Artistic Inspirations challenge #135...Anything goes/twist of summer
Card Mania #70...Anything goes
Craft Your Passion #269...Anything goes
Use Your Stuff...Anything goes
Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #13...Anything goes

Robyn's Fetish #271...Anything goes
Inspiration Destination #41...Anything goes
The Paper Shelter  #211...Holiday Time
Penny's Paper Crafty challenge #235...Anything goes

That's it for now friends. I will be back with another post later, another DT card. Wishing you a wonderful day...have fun, but take care.

Love Ursula
