Cool Summer Fun

It's Friday, It's Friday! It is beautiful here in New England. We can finally open the windows and shut off the AC, at least for the weekend! I am loving these Kenny K digis so much. When they first came out this was the very first one I bought. We have a couple of really yummy ice cream stands close to the house so my kids are always at one of them eating ice cream. So when I saw this image I thought of them immediately and couldn't resist buying it.

I colored this as soon as I caught it but had an awful time finding DP to go with it. I didn't think it was exactly a floral type of image, I wanted more teenage or edgy feel for the card. All of a sudden the other day when I was cleaning up my stamp area I saw the reinkers and knew they would make the perfect back round for her. I forgot how much fun it is making a shaving cream design. I used 2 different pinks and black for it. I also double dipped parts of it for some some fuzzy places. I am really glad I waited until I found something I liked for this image and didn't settle for something I wasn't crazy about, KWIM? I would really like to know what you think of the shaving cream back round.

Here are some challenges that fit my card
Donna's Den of Crafts Challenge #5-This week the challenge is "Something Sweet". Fun theme to play along with!
My Partner In Crafting Crime Challenge 8-This is a first time playing with this challenge. They have a great theme of "Teen or Tween" for their challenge this week. I think this is definitely a teen card!
