Summer Fun




Today's card is my entry into TOMIC'S Challenge #3-Summer.  Tilda is wading into the water, not sure of whether she wants to go swimming or not.  Have your every done that?  Maybe the water is too cold or maybe she doesn't really know how to swim!  Her mom told her not to get her new dress wet but the water is too tempting.  Will she or won't she?  I'll never tell!  I colored her with Copic markers matching my colors with the colors in my dp.  I used some Crystal Effects for the water.  It makes it so real.  My ribbon is from PTI and the buttons are tied with yellow twine and are from my stash.  You should see my stash of buttons.  I must have hundreds of them all sorted by color in mason jars.  The shaped background is cut out using a Nestibility Die and my Big Shot.  I hope you like my card!  Love, Elle
