Here comes summer at MAWTT

Well - where does the time go - Thursday morning, and it is time for  Moving Along with the Times, and the theme is Here Comes Summer. 

This week we are sponsored by Beth from Squidgi Digi, and were each given an image to work with.  Naturally I had to choose ice-cream!

For my card I have layered up co-ordinating papers, which I think are Stampin Up' from a long time ago, an have used a burnt red/orange card to go with them.  I have used a digi  little girl in a bathing suit by A Day for Daisies -  I  have coloured this and the ice-cream in Copics.  The ice-cream has had stickles added to give it some shimmer.  The sentiment is from Raindrop Echo Designs by Ann Vento.

I am entering this for the following challenges:

Sketch n'n Stash - I followed the sketch
Divas By Design - Dies and Punches
My Mum's Craft Shop - Something Old, Something New - old is paper, new is icecream and sentiment digi
Paper Pretties - Red, Orange, Yellow, Neutral
