Happy Summer!

Hi everyone.  Time for the another challenge at Addicted to CAS.  This time I paper pieced a sweet digital image from "by Lori Designs".  Her name is Lollipop and I just couldn't resist getting her!

Today's challenge is being run by the mega-talented Sue of Sue's Card Craft.  Sue has chosen this timely code word:

Prize:  $20 gift voucher
(please follow the rules to be eligible to win)

I paper pieced Lollipop's dress, shoes, hair ribbons and watermelon, adding layers to give even more interest.  The watermelon is popped up for added dimension.  The rest of the image is colored with copics ... a little chalk to color her cheeks and a dot of white gel pen.  I wanted the polka-dots to really stand out, so didn't add any other embellishments.  A simple sentiment finishes the card.

Here's a close-up:

Stamps:  Lollipop Watermelon Smile; Beach Sentiments (Amy R)
Paper:  White (C.C. Designs); Snap Color Vibe (Simple Stories); Kiwi Kiss, Melon Mambo (SU!)
Ink:  Black (SU!); Copics:  E00, E01, Y21, YR24
Accessories & Tools:  Red Chalk, white gel pen, glue, Crystal Effects, adhesives, and glue dots

I hope I have inspired you to join in our fun challenge ...  Addicted to CAS - Summer. Come check out all the wonderful creations by the other Design Team members.
