We're all going on a summer holiday...over at Pollycrafts Monday!

(Please scroll down for my Make It Monday DT card!)

Now don't tell me you're not humming the Summer Holiday song by Cliff Richard!!!  Such a cool song - it must be back in fashion by now surely!  Errr, perhaps not.  But onto why you're here - to see a card!  BUT before I go on to that , I can now announce that I have moved from my guest designer role to full blown designer for PollyCrafts!!  I love these babies so very chuffed to be on the team - thanks Paula and team for having me on board!

Okay, NOW onto my card!  Today for Pollycarfts Monday this week uber talented guest designer Cazza is challenging us to a travel/holiday theme!  Here is my make...


I used Sonny Honeycloud Life's a Beach - isn't she great?  She was such a pleasure to colour in!  I used the Stampin Up! Square lattice embossing folder (bought from Nic The Sticky Elf) on the circle matting - it reminds me of towelling material!  And I used this month's Sketch For You To Try for the layout.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:

Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Fly A Kite (from Quixotic Paperie here)
Stamps: Pollycrafts Sonny Honeycloud Life's a Beach, Hero Arts wavy sentiment
Mediums: Copics
Accents: none

Tools: EK Success cloud border punch, My Favorite Things cloud dies, Nestabilitie circle dies
