Summer Lovin'

     Edited to add:  Ooops, sorry about the mistake -- the Doodle Garden challenge actually starts on the first Saturday of each month so it will go live next Saturday, June 7.  Sorry for any confusion.

     New monthly challenge starts today at The Doodle Garden and our theme is "Summer Lovin'."  I interpreted the lovin' part of that when I chose the image called "Purr-fect Together" and then used hot summer reds for my monochromatic color combo.



I based my card on the sketch at Seems a Little Sketchy.


     The image is colored with ProMarkers and cut into a square.  The red frame is actually the left over from a die cut I used on another project.  The dp for the three strips was a scrap I found in my stash.  The two gingham bows were also in my stash, probably made a few months ago.  I added no other embellishments because I wanted to focus attention on that darling image.  :-D

     Challenges:
Crafty Catz -- A/G
Digi Sketch -- Use as stamp
Digitally Sweet -- Friendship
House That Stamps Built -- Monochromatic
Ladybug Crafts Ink -- Monochromatic

Paper Minutes -- Animals

     I hope you're having a marvelous weekend and that you'll come and play in our challenge at The Doodle Garden this month.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
