Fun in the Pool at Stampin with the Dragon

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today I get to show you one of the fabulous new images available at the Dragon's Lair.

 But before I move on, I just have to tell you that my younger sister who lives in Tanzania, is visiting the UK for a month, and she will be coming to stay for a couple of days today.  Cannot wait to see her miss her terribly when she is away.

Any way back to the task at hand, Janette continually brings us the latest Season or trend images.  I just had to play with this one called "Pool Fun" which is available here in the store
So here is my creation
A Summer Fun, Birthday Card, 
I just had to use the warm browns with the deep oranges a fabulous contrast.
I used again that 12 x 10 inch card and this time used the deep warm brown, I used my daisy around the page punch by MS and also used the grand oval circle die and the complimentary scallop oval.  The base papers are Papermania Capsule the orange ones, sorry cannot remember the correct name, but one of the mono packs.  The ribbon and the little pearls have been coloured with copics to perfectly match the creation.

Here is cute Jiggy on a close up, don't you just love the orange/yellow blend.

If you look closely opposite the feather at the side of the Grimsby Crafts glittered flower is a little fish charm.

On the centre of the ribbon tied bow is a little pair of flip flops.

I would like to welcome all my new followers and wish you all well in the 300 follower candy.   For those of you that have not yet entered the 300 follower candy you can do so here, thank you to Feline for now advertising my candy too. 

Blown away at the moment by the number of followers - thank you so much and already planning for September's 400 follower candy. Still hoping to get 300 entrants into the 300 follower candy :)

As always and very importantly I would like to say thank you to all my wonderful visitors who take the time to leave such inspirational comments on my blog, allowing me to hop back over to see your own beautiful work. THANK YOU!!

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges
