The Heat of Summer

Good morning! It is Saturday morning, Hubby has to work this weekend but I have plans and I might even make a few more cards! I have made this one for a few challenges.
House Mouse and Friends #98-Here comes Summer
Colour Create #73 -blue, grey and white
Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #109
Saturday Challenge #140-embossing
Stampin' for the Weekend #13-Favourite Things-the color blue, bling, glitter and House Mouse Stamps!
I wasn't sure about these colors together but they can look fantastic together! I colored the image with Copic markers and the saying is a Seasonal Slab. I embossed the grey and blue panels with the Cuttlebug embossing folders. I added flower bling, a sparkly flower, swirls and glitter. Thanks for stopping by!
