Papercraft Star Challenge 151

Hello everyone.  Summer is here and here in central TX it is already SO hot!  Luckily I have Papercraft Star's newest photo challenge that keeps me inside the cool air conditioned house creating!  We have a super fun photo for you this week.  How does this photo inspire you?

For me I was inspired by the bright colors in the pitcher, but if you look in the background there are some people sitting on the side of the pool splashing their legs.  That is what caught my attention! 

I started with some tangerine tango card stock then matted some designer paper from a retired SU paper pack.  The sentiment "Chillax", or should I day definition, is from Taylored Expressions.  With the weather being so hot already that's all I want to do...sit and Chillax!  Using some of the sticker embellishments from the paper pack I added some flourishes and a flower which I popped up using a thick pop dot.  I colored the lime with copics and added glossy accents.  This card was so fun to make and came together so easy.  I just love this color combo.  I can't wait to see what you come up with.  For more wonderful inspiration please to check out rest of the design team's projects at the Papercraft Star blog.  Thank you for stopping by and I hope you are having a good week.
