Gruffies and Guest Challenge Blog - August 2015 - Anything goes or the option of SUMMER FUN

Today it is time for me to show you another card for the Gruffies and Guests Challenge Blog.

 The topic for August 2015 is "anything goes with the option of summer fun".

Don't forget you do have the option of anything goes plus if you do use the optional theme (this month it is "summer fun") you will get 2 chances in the prize draw.

Don't forget to enter the challenge you MUST use a House Mouse, Happy Hoppers or Gruffies image.

This month our sponsor is:
Crafty Individuals.
This is the wonderful prize that Crafty Individuals will be giving to the challenge winner.
To me the idea of summer fun is visits to the seaside with the occasional ice-cream as a treat so I have used this image from my Joanna Sheen Gruffies and Happy Hoppers CD for my cards.  That bunny is certainly enjoying his ice-cream.  Not sure what the mouse is up to?  Maybe he's just exhausted himself by eating the ice-cream and having a snooze in his ice-cream cone.

For my card I have used a topper sheet, sentiments and backing papers from the CD.

I have kept the colour scheme to brown, pink and cream as this reminds me of of Neapolitan ice-cream.

I have finished the card of with some lace, various ribbons, button and a flower made from Tim Holtz's kraft glassine paper and a new flower die with glitter glue and pink seed beads added to the centre of the flower.

Such a beautiful card. Love the subtle colors too. So glad you joined us at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving you with an awesome inspiration from the Scripture in Hebrews 3:6 and it says, "But Christ is faithful as a son over God's house. And we are his house, if we hold on to our courage and the hope of which we boast." Have an awesome week.
