Magical Monday Challenge – Dog Days of Summer

SoakinSunajhcopy

Welcome to my first challenge with the Paper Cupcake Design Team. This is the official start of my time with them and I couldn’t be more excited.   Check out the Paper Cupcake blog for all the info on how to enter the challenge and have a chance at winning a cute prize that is up for grabs too.

Pattie Nelson brings us this weeks challenge. She wanted us to use any acquired Paper Cupcake Image and be inspired by the words "Dog days of Summer".  How true! We had a heat advisory last week for a few days as it felt like it was in the 100s! whew!!

For my card, I am using Gigi on Tube. I just love this image but then again I love my pigs!  I used Grape Soda Smooch on her umbrella and popped it up with glue dots. There is crystal effects on the water. Doesn’t she look cool lounging in her tube with her shades on?

The design paper is from Cosmo Cricket called Snorkel. Even the rub on sentiment, ribbon and the circle adhesive chipboards are from the same line.  Spellbinders Labels One was used to cut out the image and layer.

Amber, welcome to the Paper Cupcake team! What a lovely creation for "Dog Days of Summer!" Love what you did with Gigi and those papers are just perfect and rock. Love the sketch, heck the whole card is just wonderfully summery and delightful! It sure has been hot here as well! I love summer, but I am ready for it to be just a little cooler!
