Mo's dp 2 challenge dt

While we in South Africa are pulling out the winter woollies you are all gearing up for summer, so it was such a pleasure to have to make a card for the newest challenge on Mo's challenge blog where this week we want to see "Here comes summer."  The challnege totally warmed me up.
I have used Out There for my image, available at Mo's store, i normally have such a brain block when it comes to boys cards, however must add that since this image was so delightful and of course since its one of Mo's fabulous images, this card came together quite painlessly, lol
All the little charms and embellies are from my stash, my image was colored with my copics, sorry no list of colors this time.  I layered my image onto two fluer de lis spellbinders and then popped the image for a bit of dimension.  The tabs are also cut from spellbinder dies and the added pearls are also from the never ending ever growing stash.  Head over to the challenge blog to check out the rest of the teams inspiration AND.......
We have a geust dt call out for those of you that have always wanted to play on Mo's so dont forget to try out for that.
Look forward to visiting and seeing all the wonderful creations your clever bloggers come up with
have a great week
