Summer Fun


Summer means picnics right?  And picnics mean ants right?  Would be just my luck!   I love this image from Isabella's Sketchbook and decided I had to use it somewhere, so my card for this weeks challenge of Summer Fun at Isabellas Challenge blog  had to be ant picnic!   I've used Kaisercraft Lilac avenue paper, various flowers and leaves from my stash, and some dew drops. I've coloured with copics and distressed with weathered wood and milled lavender distress inks. The sentiment is from Whimsy ....I think!
 My teamies at Isabellas have cooked up some awesome cards again this week so why not hop on over to our challenge blog and check them out!  Remember, to enter our challenge you need to use an Isabella's image and she has so many beautiful images to choose from.

 I'm also entering this card in Stamptacular Sunday- Cute as a bug
