Summer Heat

lördag 5 juli 2014

Hello there!
It's a new challenge over at Frilly and Funkie where they want to see warm summer colors and even include a summer flower. Sunshine yellow is otherwise not a color I usually associate with the vintage style and I do not think I succeeded with that either. 

But it turned out quite nice though, and I associate the flower with those old shower sponges they used before, so I thought it fit so well here in my beach theme.

I colored my digi image with my Copics and cut it out with one Nestabilities Labels Ten die. The sand was made with Stampendous Shabby White embossing pouder and Fragments. A postage stamp (with the Swedish mountains, ha, ha ...) may symbolize that you usually send cards on your vacation to friends and family.

 For the frame I used one Spellbinders Card Creator die. Lovely "Hello Summer" papers from Echo Park was used for the background. Okay...that´s all for me...wishing you all a happy and enjoyable summer!
Hugs, Birgit
