Summer Daze

Good morning!  Happy Wednesday!  Hope you've had a good week so far!  I've been super busy and haven't had much time for crafting except for my DT work.  I hope to remedy that soon!  Anyway, today it's my turn to post some DT inspiration over on the Digi Bells blog

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Buckaroo Blue and the patterned papers are from the Simple Stories Summer Fresh 6x6 pad.  The darling image is Summer Daze from the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection.  I printed it on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added some Stickles to the hopping fish and the flowers in her hair.  I also added the sky and clouds with my Copics.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A few pearls and another fun little sun, created with tulle trim from Webster's Pages and a button, finished my card

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Digi Bells blog every day for wonderful inspiration from the DT and GDT using the delightful images from the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection!
