Summertime's like crickets around here!  I can explain though :)  I have been spending a lot of time working on this wedding invitation order that has to get out in the mail in the next 2 weeks. have not been a high priority for me, thus no blog posts :(

But I am back today with a quick post for our new Tuesday Throwdown challenge!!  This week is Anything Goes and our fabulous sponsor is Robyn's Fetish!
As I scanned through her images, one really caught my eye as being perfect for summer.
I loved the summery look of this image!  I can just imagine the cute little bear looking up at the clouds and making shapes out of them :)  The image is It's a Beary Nice Day, and I've colored it in with my colored pencils.
The scallop frame is cut from the Lacy Labels cartridge and I've inked all the edges with an orange color.
The sentiment is a recent one from Create with TLC.  I thought it was perfect for the image :)

And then!  My favorite part!  Check out the oval!!  I got my first ever Spellbinders Nestabilities in the mail last week!!!!  Oh *happy dance*! So of course I had to bust them open and use one on this card :)  I have been dreaming of having those forever and when I found a 50% off sale in the states, I begged some family to go out and purchase me a few :)
I finished off the card with some cord strung behind the image and wrapped around the flagged panel.  Then I made a few little bees with some heart punches and black paint :)  Added some glitter glue to all the wings and it was done!

This card is entered in the following challenges:
    Crafts 4 Eternity #78-Bear Necessities
