It's the 28th of the month and that means it's time to post our cards for the Calendar Girls' challenge. With summer coming, our hostess, Miss June (Carol), challeneged us to make a card that displays something we look forward to.
Living in a place with a long, dark winter I always look forward to summer and SUNSHINE!! I get out in it every chance I can get. And I look forward to watching my kids play. So my pocket card displays SUNSHINE and a the kids having a pool party enjoying the summer weather.
I used Crumb Cake, Poppy Parade, Baja Breeze and Whisper White cardstock. The DP is from a retired pack of paper from Stampin' Up! The ribbon is Poppy Parade from SU! I made the clouds using the sponging technique and a scalloped circle. I added the small flowers with pearl centers and the grass border to give the card a little more summery look. I paper pieced the swimming pool with the DP and colored the rest of the image with Copic and SU markers.
