I dig you


     It's summer time so I'm sure you have a pair of sunglasses laying around if you need them to view this card.  LOL  Trendsetter Danielle Lounds has challenged us to use the following inspirational photo for the new challenge at There She Goes.


     Lots of bright neon colors which scared me a bit at first, but when I finally picked the "right" stamp to use for my project it all clicked into place.  This little cutie is from the latest releases at TSG, the Aquaholic set in particular.  I built her some sand dunes complete with sea grass to play in with her bucket and shovel.  Neons aren't my strongest suit, but I'm happy with the card and I hope you'll find a little crafty time to make a card to play along with us.
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

The Hybrid Chick Card Caravan--lazy days of summer
The Squirrel and the Fox--summer or winter

  13. I think you have rocked this colour palette. It's bright which I love but not harsh which neons can be. You've also paired the brights with those awesome sand dunes (great building) which give the eye a place to reast from the brights. Sweet sweet card. She is adorable. Love the paper patterns in the background. That sun die is calling to me...lol.
