Remembering summer

'Remembering summer' is the theme of the Cheerful stamp pad challenge 119, for which I made this card for the second week - please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team. Sadly, Vicki is taking a break from hosting these challenges - I will certainly miss designing with Vicki and the rest of her wonderful team and wish everyone well in their ongoing crafting. I looked back to see when I first joined the team at the Cheerful stamp pad was amazed that it was back in August 2013, just over two years ago.

This is a similar card to the one I made for week 1 of this challenge, once again using the lovely Miss Lily on the beach image kindly supplied by the challenge sponsor, Little Blue Button, coloured with chameleon pens. Papers and card used to create the background were  from various bits and pieces that have built up over the years, tearing to give the idea of the sea and beach with a torn piece of DCWV summer paper text across the middle and a piece of DCWV flip flops grosgrain ribbon with a few other bits and pieces. I made the bucket and spade look shiny by covering with glossy accents, although that doesn't show here.
