Michelle Perkett Studio Challenge 43 - Hang on to Summer Fun

It's time for another challenge at Michelle Perkett Studios. This week it's Hold on to Summer Fun! Make a card with a summer theme using any Michelle Perkett image. If you don't have any of her fab images you can find them at her Etsy store and at Bunny Zoes Crafts. There are sometimes freebies at CDAC too.

The challenge winner will get a $10 to spend in Michelle's Etsy store.

For my DT card I've used Stella the Summer Storyteller coloured with Promarkers, with some Stardust Stickles added to the flowers and her hair and waistband. I've inked the edges with Distress Inks.
The dp is from a set from QVC. I've punched some green Bazzill with a Martha Stewart deep edge flower punch, and added some blue satin ribbon and a bow and gem. The gem swirl is Prima, and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I've added some Stardust Stickles to the flowers, and punched out some leaves with a Martha Stewart punch. Cardstock is green Bazzill 6 x 6". I followed a fab sketch from Crafty Calendar.

I'm entering my card into these challenges:

Allsorts Week 67 - Park Inspiration
Daisy Doodles Challenge 16 - Anything Goes (must be a digi image)
OSAAT Challenge 28 - Girlie or colour scheme
CES Challenge 1 - Anything Goes
Crafty Calendar Challenge - August - a fab sketch
