Challenge #125 - "Holiday Time" - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning, yes I know two days in a row I must be improving in my blogging, well sorry I doubt it I just dont seem to have the mojo to be posting a card everyday so do please forgive me, I will try and improve but if I dont you will understand I hope.
Anyway this weeks Challenge over at The Paper Shelter is themed "Holiday Time" and we are hoping to see lots of your holiday images on your cards, so Im sure you have them in your stash I know I have.
As always our very generous sponsors are Veronica and Pedro from The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30.


but as always you must have used one of their images, papers or printables on your card, but even if you havent they will still give you 3 digi images of your own choice, so really you cannot loose can you.
For my card I have used this gorgeous image.


Of course unfortunately that lovely sunny hot weather has now disappeared and we are now back to our normal wet summers, lets hope it doesn't last long but to be honest I would'nt bank on it going in the near future. For my card I have used "Sunny Days" and you will find it here, I have printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used Nestabilitie Die Labels No.22 and a decorative one for the mount.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of yellow card, the papers I have used are from the Sweetshoppe Digi Papers "Poolside Splash", the first is a bright yellow sunshine paper, and the second and third are both patterned ones, and on both of these I have used border punch from Martha Stewart seaside one. Then across the middle is a water one again mounted onto yellow card.
The mounted image was then placed in the center and the sentiment across the top left hand corner.
Now that  youve seen my card I do hope that you will pay a visit to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot to see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration with this "Holiday Time" theme.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
