Lazy Summer

This card takes its inspiration from what I like to be able to do when I have a summer holiday - which is lots of reading lol.

I used a corner punch to round the corners of the base card and then added Papermania glitter ribbon in black and Dovecraft glitter card. I also used the new neon gems, as well as a black pearl and some dark iridescent diamantes as accents. The image is an Aliciabel image, and the sentiment was done in word on my computer (after I discovered my Serif Page Plus 9 does not work on my new laptop!). Both were die-cut using nesting dies. The image was coloured using te following Promarkers - Almond and Sunkissed Pink for the skin, Pale Pink for the lips, Walnut for the eyes, Tequila Sunrise for the hair, Summer Sun and Lime Twist for the dress and accessories, and Black Flex marker for te beanbag.
