Celebrating Summer

This week our wild and crazy Ribbon Carousel Crewmate Jenny Peterson is serving us up with a dose of crafty inspiration.  She is challenging us to make a card with a SUMMER theme! 


Ahhh Summer!  It's the time to enjoying long days of warm sunshine, no school, family vacations, toes in the sand and dips in the pool.  Here in the Ramlakhan household, those carefree days are quickly coming to an end...only one more week before school starts!!   

With Summer as inspiration for this weeks challenge it was the perfect excuse for me to use Saturated Canary's, Cali Girl image.  I kept the card design simple, with a card base of Bazzill's Marshmallow cardstock and Fancy Pants (Beach Babe) designer paper.  I embellished with a little loop of Parrot Green grosgrain ribbon along with some Prima paper flowers from my stash and added a K&Company road sign metal brad in the center.  The (real) starfish was attached with a dot of hot glue and I used the  Perfect Layers tool to achieve the perfectly straight and spaced layers on my card. 


Copics Used:
Skin: E15, E13, E11, E00, E50, R02
Hair: C9, C7, C5, C3, C1
Lips: R24, R22, R11
Eyes/Bikini: BG18, BG13, BG11
Towel: RV17, RV34, RV10
Shadowing: C1, BG11, BG70



Hopefully my creation has inspired to you play along with us this week at the Ribbon Carousel Challenge Blog Remember, your creation can be anything you'd like, just be sure you use ribbon, bakers twine, lace, thread...(anything that comes on a spool) using a SUMMER theme.





Thanks so much for stopping by today!!  :)
