Digital Tuesday Challenge #13: Summertime

This week at the Digital Tuesday Challenge the theme is summertime! We are sponsored this week by Dustin Pike and our winner will get their choice of 3 images from his vast array!

My card today includes one of those images, the minute I saw these little bird cooling his jets in this birdbath I knew I wanted to use him... and with the heat wave going on right now for a good part of the nation I thought he was looking very cool and comfortable!

I decided to keep this a CAS card and use some bolder colors on it. My scalloped edges are the apron lace punch by fiskars that I cut down and added to each side of my image. I also added a small, black rhinestone to the end of my sentiment. The embossed background is by my Cuttlebug Bubbles Folder. Thanks so much for joining me today and I can't wait to see what YOU come up with!
  • Stamps: Digital Image by Dustin Pike, Sentiment by Studio G
  • Papers: Scraps
  • Other: Edge Punch Apron Lace by Fiskars, Embossed Background Bubbles by Cuttlebug, Copics, Rhinestone
