Summer Sugar Nellie

Hope everyone is enjoying a fun summer week!! Katharina, a fellow blogger and friend, has a great challenge on her blog this week called YAOB(your artwork on my blog). You have to use one of her fantabulous sketches with a sugar nellie image as the focal point to win a sugar nellie stamp.
This little guy is one of 2 sugar nellie images I received in an image swap. I thought since it's now officially summer, this one would be perfect!!
I colored him in using reinkers(soft sky, blue bayou and creamy caramel). I then used an older SU set, sparkling summer, for the background on the soft sky layer and the beach ball, which is also on a dimensional and has crystal effects and dazz. diamonds.
I used my cuttlebug on the kraft layer for the circles and edging.
The sentiment is from one of a kind.
Finally I did a bit of doodling around the edge.
Be sure to check out Katharina's blog, it's amazing:)

Thanks for stoppin' by!
