Addicted to Stamps - Summertime

We have another challenge for you at Addicted to Stamps. This time the challenge theme is Summer Time. I love using summery colors, so bright and sunny, just brings a smile to your face.
I used K&Company Sweet Nectar paper pad for this card. I love the bright colors and patterns of this paper. I paired them up with this Sarah Kay image, Rosalie's Bicycle. Isnt it just adorable??!!! I love this image, reminds me of being a kid and riding my bike all summer. My boys are like that too, they LOVE riding their bikes and playing outside in the summer sun!
I colored this image with copics:
Skin - E21, E00, E000, R20
Hair - E27, E25, E53
Shirt - RV13, RV10, RV00
Pants - B97, B95, B91, B99
Hat - E43, E41, E40, RV10, RV00, RV13
Shoes - C1, C0, R27, R24
Bike - R29, R27, R24, R22, C5, C3, C1, C0
Baskets - E35, E33, E50
Dog - C3, C1, C0
I added lots of Wild ORchid flowers and the sentiment is from my Lili of the Valley Dreamy Days stamp set. I used green 25mm roses, pink cherry blossoms, and white 125mm roses. I punched the leaves from my Martha Stewart Fond punch.
I hope you will join us at addicted to stamps this week for our Summer challenge. I cant wait to see what you create.

  4. GORGEOUS card! Love this image, and you certainly achieved the effect you were going for - it made me feel better just looking at it. Only trouble is ............. I made the mistake of looking out the window again - rainy and grey - how depressing. Maybe you'd better send this card to me???



  5. Wow Becca, how did I miss this, what a bright fanastic card, I love the hot pink and lime, just gorgeous, thanks so much for joining the fairies at Prairie Fairy Fridays!

  6. Becca, What a totally sweet card. The colors are super. Thanks for playing with us at Prairie Fairy Fridays

  7. Really gorgeous. Love your colour combo and what a fabulous bow! Wish I could tie them like that.
