Here Comes Summer!



The theme for the challenge over at Lili of the Valley is Here Comes Summer.
I had to make a birthday card for a very special little boy who is no longer that little but he's still a little scamps so this image just about sums him up!
The image is Hanging Around by Lili of the Valley. This has been stamped with Memento and coloured with Copic markers, I've added a bit of blue chalk for the sky. It has been die cut with a Nellie Snellen rectangle die, the sentiment has been stamped onto the smallest of the dies.
Most of the papers are from Basic Grey. I've also used a Tim Holtz Sizzix die "brackets".
The colours used on my image also fit in with the Copic Colour Challenge this week.
