It's The last Days Of Summer

Wow, can you believe how fast summer is flying by?! Before you know it, we'll be feeling the crisp, cool air of fall! Time sure flies!  Since summer is nearing an end, how about let's do a Last Days of Summer challenge?! Like the idea?! Good, because that's our challenge theme this fortnight at Open Minded Crafting.
We want to show us how you're celebrating your Last Days of Summer, this year.  Remember, you have two weeks to play along with us, for a chance to win great prizes from these fabulous sponsors:


Don't miss out on these awesome prizes! Come over to Open Minded Crafting and show us your end of summer creations for your chance to win!

My last days of summer card uses the image Mermaid, By Kenny K, colored with Promarkers. I went with a blue and purple color combo for this card, with a fun mix of patterns. All papers are from my stash. I used chevron patterned buttons to embellish.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
