The Paper Shelter Challenge #162 Summertime

It's time for another fabulous challenge from The Paper Shelter Challenge blog today and our theme this week for the B Team is Summertime.

You don't have to use an image specifically for summer, but can use an image and/or colours that mean summer to you. I used the gorgeous Summer Holidays for my card - isn't she just beautiful?! That's one of the things I love about Veronica and Pedro's girly images - they are always so pretty!

And here she is. I used lots of Silhouette die cuts on this one to create my bright, tropical beach scene.

Don't forget if you join in you have a chance at winning one of our fabulous prizes.
