Summer Fun Challenge

One of the thing that for me is synonymous with summer are BBQ's and suits the theme of Bee Crafty's latest challenge and I had a digital image that would fit the bill. For some reason I thought it was one of Bee Crafty's images but when I went to print it off I discovered that it came from Digistamp Boutique, but I hope that Bee Crafty won't hold it against me!!!!

Although not entering the challenge over at Anyone For Anya I was inspired by their challenge sketch.

Onto the card. The base card, 6 x 6, is made from K&Company's Recycled Remake Ocean Blues cardstock, as are the two rectangular mats. The backmost mat and the photo corners were from Imaginisce's Go For Baroque - Blue Blooded. The image, BBQ Jim, as I said before is from Digistamp Boutique, and was coloured in with my copic pens and the edge of the mat soften with an inkpad from Stampabilities, the color being Royal Blue. Rounded off two corners of the base card and two on one of the rectanglar mats.

The card is for my neighbour's birthday on Sunday. The birthday celebrations are being held early, as his family are here just now but will be leaving to head home to Scotland on Saturday, so Thursday is party time. Thought the image was quite appropriate as there is to be a bbq.

Thanks for popping by.
