Guest Designer at Ooh La La #182 - Here comes summer / it's definitely time for a vacation

Monday June 8, 2015
 
I was asked if I would like to be a Guest Designer at Ooh La La for June so I jumped at the chance.. what's one card..  I truly feel honored being asked.
 
The challenge for the next two weeks is #182  "Here Comes Summer"
 

I was given some digi papers to use for the challenge.  Now this is new to me. Sure I use designer papers from pads all the time so I guess it is similar to that.. But OH it is nice having these beautiful papers on the computer and you can size them and do what you want. All of the papers are Beach butterflies series and there are more than what I used.  I love the woven background paper it was a favorite of mine and the image is too cute. I cut some banners out of some of the other papers and the sea bird is a die I have and I just die cut him out of some black and gray that I had. I added the sand dollar button (DH removed the shank and sanded down) and my sentiment. The base is SU card stock. I am so pleased with this card.   I hope you get a chance to hop on over to the Ooh La La blog and play along.. Summer is right around the corner and what better way to get in the mood for summer than to make a "Here comes summer" card.   I hope I inspired you.
