New Divas by design challenge Summer is here

Well is it really? A few days of UK sun and I am hoping that it will continue throughout the summer!
I knew all my posts last wk would be too good to be true! Actually I really should have been creating last night but after spying all my grey hairs peeking through over the weekend last night was dedicated to re dying my hair and watching Twilight eclipse during the process!
However, back to my DT duties and a new challenge over at Divas by design! We are celebrating summer by creating summer inspired projects and are sponsored by the super fab Dis Digis, whose beach background stamp I used to create my card.

I have loosely followed the sketch over at Anyone for Anya this wk, I say loosely as all the main elements of the sketch are there but I have adjusted them a bit, hope it's ok! I have used a lovely background paper from Makin memories just chillin pad and have used this stunning TGF stamp which I have been itching to use since I bought her!

My images (background and character) have been coloured with prismas. I have used pearls from Kort and godt and flowers from Wild orchids. My sentiment stamp is also TGF.

I would also like to enter this into Fairytale summer challenge, Fussy and fancy summer, Fairy fun fridays on holidays, Card makin mamas summertime, Craft your days away summertime, Paper sundaes beach, Pink elephant fun in the sun, For fun challenges sand/beach and Paperplay time summer challenge.
Please check out the other amazing creations from the superb DT (they are such a fab bunch of creative folk!) We also hope you can join in with us for the challenge over the next 2wks!
Thanks so much to you all for coming by my blog and for my lovely new followers "hello!" Hugs to all

This is such a cute card, Rebekah! I wish I could trade you some hot Texas sun for some cool UK rain and clouds! It has been over 100 degrees Fahrenheit for 63 days and I am about to go insane! The grass in my yard is dead and now the shrubs are dying too. Back to your card... that background digi is just perfect for your adorable little bathing beauty and as always, your coloring is superb! Just a delightful scene though I am wishing for the end of summer here! LOL
