So here is what you have been waiting for!  My card for this week uses the Spotlighted creators image, Sue from Beary dust stamps in the store.  She has som Fabulous images so pop on over and check them out.

The theme gor the challenge this week is 'Schools out/ Graduation'

I have gone with the schools out theme for this card.

The backing papers are from My Minds eye 'Spring papers' collection.  I have used brads and threads to decorate one set of the papers.

The image is called 'Ellie Mae' and I have coloured her with promarkers.  She has been cut out with a Nellie Snellen die cut which has been inked and liquid pearled.  I have added a flower and pearls to the image to make it look like she is sitting on something.

Lazy days has been stamped onto another Nellie snellen die using a Lili of the valley stamp The die cut has been inked and I have added a pair of sunglasses charm to it.

For the inside I have used the same papers and a scalloped circle nesties die .  on the left hand side I have used the quote

'Summer afternoon-
Summer afternoon...
the two most
beautiful words in
the English language'
by Henry James

I will be entering this card into the following challenges V is for variety ( types of embellies) Sentiment from the heart Inspired by a song 'Summertime' by Billie Holliday

Thanks for stopping by
