DTC #94 Tropical Warmth

Happy tuesday and thanks so much for stopping by today!

We have another fun challenge over at digital tuesday, this week our theme is

Tropical Warmth!

It has been so cold over here, with snow and ice rain that this was a perfect reminder that summer will be here in only 6 short months!!!

For my card I have used an image from our sponsor Robyn's Fetish.


It's been colored with copic markers. The swimsuit and umbrella were paper pieced by simply printing the image out a second time on designer paper and cutting out, then adhering them onto the main image.
Then I stamped flourishes around the image with a stamp from paper inspirations which I picked up at Hobby Lobby. The sentiment is from the digital sentiment set "Summertime" by raindropecho available at Whimsy Stamps. I thought it was perfect to use with this image.

My papers are all from Stampin Up. The flower and scallop borders are from a stampin up simply scrappin kit that I had forever.
My sketch was inspired by a sketch from the lovely Anne-Marije, but I don't remember which challenge she created it for.

I have again combined this with a couple of other challenges, just 2 today:
Karber weekly (digi and ribbon)
Stamp Fairy (paper piecing)

Hope you liked the card and if you feel like you need a little bit of tropical warmth in your life why not join us at this challenge? Remember, you can now use anything digital, it doesn't have to be the main image! Plus you'll be entered into a drawing to win some cute digis from Robyn's Fetish!
