Well when I think of summer, I think of the Blazing sun and heat here in Illinois, which makes me think of ORANGE...and the juicy, refreshing, moist slices of an Orange or the cold, icy glass of orange juice, gulped down trying to quench your parched thirst.
At Squiggle Fly this week, they want you to tell them what your summer color is...the challenge this week is doesn't mean you have to create a summer theme card, just that you PICK one color that you associate with summer and create your card in that color! And tell them why you picked that color. AND an added bonus for us fans: since they didn't have a winner for last week's challenge, they've decided to add the previous week's prizes to the current prize so this week's prize is THREE digi-stamps of your choice from the store. WOW. Remember to win the Challenge, you must use a digi-stamp from Squigglefly.
I chose Land Swimmers by Cheryl Alger -it's got such fun elements-and decided to do an Easel Card because I had 2 great papers from Scrapease that just reeked of Summer Fun. I fancy cut the oranges from the paper to use as accents with button centers. Then decided to do the same thing to the starfish accents. There's a scalloped die cut to use on the inside for sentiments (see it peeking out from under the image).
Hope you will go have some fun on their site and enter a card!
