Spoonfull of Sugar - Summertime

Over at Spoonful of Sugar the challenge this week is ' Summertime ' quite apt as I spent all day wednesday at the beach with the whole of Sophies/Alfies school, 200 children and nearly as many adults, we took over half the beach and had a fantastic day, paddling, making sand castles, playing cricket, it really was such fun, we do this trip with the school every year and each time they just get better. This little ' surfer Emma ' from CC Designs is sooooooooo summery it was perfect for this challenge.

I have coloured the image with my copics and have given Emma a bit of a suntan, not intentional but my E00 had run out ! The papers I have used are K&Co, the plain card i used for matting was eun through a cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder before being distressed. The flowers are Prima and the ribbon and brads are from my stash.

I found a great little ice-cream sundae button at the bottom of my tin and luckily the colours matched my card perfectly, lastly I added a few crystals.
Catch you all tomorrow,
Claire xx
