Stella's ready for summer...

For this card I used the sketch over at "Stella Says Sketch" as inspiration for my layout. And I did use a Stella image as well. She's dressed for summer, and I gave her bright colored clothes. I fussy cut her and added her to a panel with doodled lines. The panel is mounted on foam. I chose a neutral sentiment, so that the card can be used for several occasions. For the border I used my wave die from Memory Box, and I added white twine onto which I attached a small boat metal charm. The background DP is from Carta Bella's "Rough Tumble" paper pad.

This card is for these challenges:
1) Stella Says Sketch - #208 Sketch
2) Cuttin & Stampin Challenges - For Mom Without Flowers
3) Addicted to Stamps and More - #93 Holiday
4) MilkCoffee Challenge - Use those Bright Colors

Dressed in bright summer outfit, Stella still looks like a grumpy so-and-so! Got to love her! Great backing papers and the waves look just right for the card. I hope Stella can find the strength to actually chill!
