Here Comes Summer

Totally Papercraft's Challenge this week is "Here Comes Summer."  By the heat here in Arizona we're way in the middle of it.  Hardly a day under 100 degrees lately.  Our sponsor for this challenge is Simon Says Seamp.  They're giving away a twenty-five dollar gift certificate.

 I chose this image by Saturated Canary.

The sailboat digital paper is by AZredhead available on Etsy.  The dotted paper is by MGACreations, also on Etsy.  I colored her with Copics.  The ribbon is from my stash and the Happy Birthday stamp is from Stampin' Up.

Copics:  B01, B94, B21, B23, BG0000, BG000, BG10, C00, C0, C1, C2, E000, E00, E08, E11, E19, E21, E23, E29, R20, R22, R24, R29
