Summer Sweetness

Hi Again!
Well I'm back with another DT project today, this time its Phindy's Place and were challenging you all to make a summer card.
Well, it was about 96 degrees today so I have no trouble to "think sunshine". Unfortunately, I have the 'heat headache' to prove it.
But anyway! Back to the card!
Isn't this summer girl so cute? Its called "sticky elbow" and Ive colored her with Prismacolors. The sentiment I created on the computer and then merged it so it sat right on the paper near my image. You can snag it at the end of the post.
the papers are DCWV and the ribbons are Crafty Ribbons. The sentiment stamp is from Whimsy Stamps. I distressed it a bit with distress inks.

A close up:

For the sentiment just click, right click and save or, go to my Free Sentiments box in the sidebar and download different sizes from there.

I would like to play along with these challenges:
Pixie Cottage - -  Sketch* and/or sun
ColourQ - COLOR* #86
Nettie G's Digital Gems - - Childhood fantasies
Inspire Me Fridays - Always anything goes
Tip Top Tuesday: Two stamps
Digi Doodle Shop's Best - - Anything goes.
Paper Crafting Journey - Anything goes and/or use your favourite whatever (colours, technique, etc).
Paper Romance -  Distressing.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Err......nothing as warm as that here, LOL - but you could have probably guessed that anyway - but at least the winds have died down a bit now.
