Crafting musketeers challenge 37: summer

This is my card for Crafting musketeers challenge 37: summer. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and we hope you will join in our challenge.

Well, summer must be on it's way soooon, although last week we had four seasons in one day ... sun, hail, sun, snow, wind ...

I think you need your sunglasses on for viewing this card ... well, it is all about summer.

I've used the Sunsational Stamps Tiffany lounging image kindly supplied by the sponsor of the challenge. I coloured with spectrum noir pens and die cut with X cut rectangular parenthesis die (these are among my favourites), using a larger one to cut an offcut of We R Memory Keepers paper that had been left from a previous project.

The background was created with acrylic paint, a stencil and the gelli plate (left over from a previous project). Ribbon is DCWV, a chipboard 'FUN' that I've had for ages and a pair of flip flop charms (much brighter colour irl).
