Summer Delight

Summer Delight is what I'd name this digi stamp from Designed2Delight.  It includes so much that I love - the beach, flip flops and a star fish.  It's so me. ;)  It's a freebie from the Delightful Inspiration blog and you can get it through tomorrow.  The sentiment is from a digi set by CDSKT.  If anyone knows what the initials stand for, I'd be happy to include the entire name and link.  Sometimes I can't remember a company name when I only have the initials to go by.

I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils.  I popped the starfish and the sentiment up with some ds foam tape to give them some dimension.  I paper sculpted the flower in the dp to give it some dimension too.  I meant to ink the edges of the image and sentiment, but was chatting with Mark and watching tv while making the card and forgot.  Which just goes to show that I can't talk and craft at the same time. lol
 Challenges:
Designed2Delight Image Challenge
Scrap Creations - Summer
The Stamping Boutique - Summer Scene

Here's a picture I took of a butterfly on a Zinnia.  The Zinnia was beyond it's prime, but the butterfly is so beautiful that I had to share.  I so enjoy nature.

Love the way you sculpted that flower...looks like it truly belongs there....and the pic of the gorgeous butterfly made me sigh....you are so good at photography....would have looked like a stick if I'd tried to do it, lol!
