Island Hammock

     Aud Sentiments has a new challenge starting today and our theme is "Use a Summer Sentiment."  Our sponsor is Make It Crafty and they generously provided images for the DT to use.   The one I used not only makes a great summer card, it's a wonderful card for a guy, maybe even for Father's Day.  I wish I was lazing in that hammock with a cool ocean breeze blowing instead of enduring the fourth day of a heat wave where temps have been over 100 each day and they are predicting at least another 6 days of those temps before we cool down into the high 90s!  Yuck.

My colors came from CAS on Sunday.

     This "Island Hammock" image was colored with ProMarkers and then die cut with a die from QuicKutz.   I layered that onto dark blue CS, aligning it so that the top edge of the die cut overlapped the stitched ribbon.  The bow was originally made from white ribbon but I colored it with marker to match the wide ribbon.

Great sentiment choice for that image AND our challenge! I love that you colored that bow to match the ribbon - that's a great tip that I often forget is even an option. Nicely done toots - and stay cool!

Gorgeous little scene NanaC, I would love to be there lying in the hammock with a cool breeze too but for the opposite reason to you, It's still freezing over here in Bonnie Scotland! Still need to take a jacket when you go out! Brr!
