Hello Summer!

With the onset of the summer season, the bartenders at Raise the Bar will be slowing up the challenges a wee bit.  We will only be doing ONE challenge each month in June, July, and August - all of which will be sponsored by a fabulous company!  This means you have the whole month to play along with us!  Today is our first challenge with the theme: Hello Summer! 

I fell in love with this adorable digi by Sassy Cheryl called Precious Callie.  Picking a posy for your pocket...romping through the grass playing with your ladybug friends...ahhh, the joys of summer!  I sponged the edges with Summer Sun ink then colored the image with Copics and added polka dots to her top using a white opaque gel pen.  What else did I use?

STAMPS: Tiny Tags (PTI)-sentiment; Precious Callie digi by Sassy Cheryl
PAPER: Summer Sun, X-Press It Blending Card, Buttercup DP by Lily Bee Design
ACCESSORIES: Enchanted Evening satin ribbon by PTI, Prima, Tiny tag die by PTI, Labels Ten Nesties, Crystal Effects (added to the lady bugs).
