Fun in the Sun

Hi there!  Happy Wednesday!  How has your week been so far?  Good, I hope!  The storms yesterday have made today a steam bath!  It's so hot and humid!  I can't complain, though, because although we are way over our normal rainfall, at least there hasn't been the awful flooding that others in the country are experiencing.  I had some contractors in again today, so while they worked, I went to my craft room and made a card for a few challenges I enjoy.

Here is what I made:

My card base and mats are SU Pool Party and the patterned papers are from the Echo Park A Perfect Summer 6x6 pad.  I used two fun images from Pollycraft for Little Miss Muffet Stamps: Swings 'n Slides Ice Cream Cart and Ice Cream Bench.  I colored them both with my Copics.  I cut them out with my Cameo and layered them on foam tape.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.   With the papers and images, it was busy enough, so I didn't add any more embellishments.

Here is a close-up of the images:

Thanks for stopping by!  If I haven't visited you already, I'll be by soon!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Pollycraft Challenge #4 (fun in the sun)
Sketch Saturday #270 (sketch)
Sentimental Sundays #166 (child's play with sentiment)
QKR Stampede #50 (summer fun)
Fab 'n' Funky Challenges #81 (looks like summer)

Here is SS-270:

Have a great evening and see you tomorrow for my Little Miss Muffet DT post.
