Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge #35

Hello all! Thanks for joining me for a card for this week's Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge! Here is this week's challenge:

Here is my card:

I love these summery colors! It's nice to use them on a card especially when you have had a rainy week like us.

The image I used for my card is Swimming Lucy. Ahhhh.... hope a nice warm summery day comes soon...

After coloring the image on PTI's Stamper's Select White, I cut and embossed it with a Labels 16 die. It's then matted with a piece of lace doily before I pop dotted it on the orange patterned paper. The sentiment panel is cut and embossed with a Petite Ovals Small die. The pink and white stripe patterned paper is punched with the Doily Lacy Edge border punch. I added some Star Dust Stickles to the water and the butterfly. The patterned paper is from the Sweet Summertime collection by Echo Park and the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.
