Sizzling Summer

Hello again! The wonderful group of bloggy crafty girls I belong to are having a monthly challenge, and this is our first round. The theme is Sizzling Summer. Basically, the hostess for the month sends the girls on her team a card kit with the elements to put together a card, and everyone will make a card and share it with the group. April put this neat kit together (isn't the glittery paper the best?) I hope I did the image justice - it's a little out of my comfort zone, but really neat. Jenny has these Sweet Pea stamps for sale in the Paper Jewels store (sorry, had to plug - she has a great store!)

I used this week's sketch from Card Patterns for this card.

I colored her in with Prismacolor pencils and softened it with OMS. I highlighted with red and clear Stickles. I also added SU Real Red cardstock to the kit.

Thanks for stopping by today!
