Double D Challange - Colors of Summer

A reminder!  Most of you are aware that Feedburner went away on July 1.  I decided last minute, to jump on the Follow it email.  So if you still want to get a notice that I have posted, just sign up on Follow it on the right. 

Hello, and I hope you're having a fun summer.  We have lots of inspiration for you here on the 
Double D Challenge blog. 

This is the inspiration board for this challenge hosted by Darlene. 

I was inspired by the upper left corner and those cool popsicles.  Only in my day, we didn't have that kind, I made the ones that I was familiar with in my youth. 

Here is the card that I made. 
This is a mini slimline card with the mini dies from Kat Scrappiness. I used several layers including a cute design paper from a long time ago.  I designed the popsicles myself as I had no dies, but these were pretty easy to do. Then I colored them up and placed as many as I could fit on my card. The sentiment is from Simon Says and Penny Black, but I only used one word from each to make my sentiment. 

Here is te prize for a random winner. 

Visit my other team members for more ideas for the challenge. You can find them hanging around the Double D Challenge Blog. 

Thanks for stopping by and I always appreciate your comments!
