Showing Off Summer

Welcome to our new challenge, at Hobbycutz. This fortnight's theme is your favorite and mine - Anything Goes! Whoo Hoo! You have two weeks to play along and there's great prizes up for grabs! We are so excited to see all your creations, so come play along with us!

I went with a summer themed card in bright, summery colors. My card uses the image, Ashley 3, from The East Wind, colored With Promarkers. I used a pair of flip flop buttons in the bottom right corner. In the top corner, I used a wooden flower diecut from Hobbycutz, then quilled vines to go on each side.  I added a shiny crystalized gemstone pearl to the center of the flower. The sunglasses on the image have been given that "Glass" look, with a clear Glaze pen.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
