Mo's challenge dt

I know my blog has been pretty quiet of late, but there is a lot happening in my real life at the moment, so please be patient with me, things will sort themselves out soon, and i am also trying to catch up with dt work so when i have to move house and be without my craft room during my move i will still have been one step ahead enought to be able to post on my blog.
ok now that i have had my little winge, on with this weeks challenge on Mo's dp2 challenge blog its a "summer vacation challenge"  while we in Africa are freezing our tooshies off.
I have used Lacie with ice-cream available from Mo's store, i love this image, have used her before, but what can i say, Mo's images are so fabulous i can use them over and over and never tire of using them.  I colored her with copics, listed colors below:
My paper is from Prima and i love this paper, when i started out with this paper it was bright and cheerful with loads of summer colors and once i started layering, it just kinda got lost in the creative process, but you can still see it on the inside of my card.
The corner i used are available from Wild orchards but i found a local supplier that has basically the same products, however i dont need to wait for them to come from the UK what a win!  I used my top boss pad on the corner and then added some white embossing powder to it and then a touch of the ol" glittah that we cant do without.
Doily, flowers and pearls from my stash.  The dt have again outdone themselves so do pop over to the challenge blog to be inspired and join in the fun
Copics used:  skin: E21, E00, E000  Pinks:  R83, R81, RV00  Yellows: Y13, Y11, Y00  Green:  G85, G82, G40  wood:  E25, E53, E31
