Enjoy Your Summer Card

Hello! Summer is officially three weeks away but it's starting to feel like it here in Oklahoma. The last couple of days have been humid and warm. Having warm weather is fine, it's the humidity that I don't care for, it creates really bad hair days. Bad hair days with long hair = an updo!

I have a quick post to share the card I made using this months image for the progressive challenge from Gerda Steiner Designs. The image is called Mouse with Drink and my mouse is drinking lemonade. The card base was a freebie I got from the local scrapbook store last year. I did the yellow stamping and sentiment while at the store during a demonstration, but I never completed the intended project. So, I have rescued it and made this Enjoy Your Summer Card. The image was colored with Copic markers and cut into an oval shape to fit inside the scalloped die cut. To add a little more interest I used a pretty floral paper from my scrap bin on both edges. That's it!

This card is entered into the following challenges:
