Summer Colour

Hello everyone! It's summertime here in the Yukon, although we have been feeling underwater ourselves with all the rain we've been receiving.  I just love summer for all the wonderful colour that erupts after months of snow!  I do love snow, but I just adore colour!
We have a wonderful new challenge beginning over at Card Crafter's Circle and we'd love to have you join us to celebrate summer holidays!  This week we are being sponsored by the incredible Bugaboo Stamps and they have a wonderful prize of 7 digis for the random winner! Yippee!
For my card I've used this fantastic scuba diving frog, coloured with prismas and set inside this porthole.  I used my Creative Memories circle cutters for this and added some mini square brads that I inked just a bit to add a slightly tarnished look.  I popped this over some seaweed ( or at least that's what I was thinking when I added this swatch of mesh from my already enjoyed avacados.)  The brown ribbon is for the sand and then the wire of colourful fish are beads that I snagged from my girls collection.  To finish it off, this sentiment from I believe TLC just fits perfectly.  
I pray you are all enjoying some summer fun in the northern hemisphere.  For those of you in the southern hemisphere when you have summer I'll be dreaming of your warmth.  May you have some time to come and join us at Card Crafter's Circle for yet another fun challenge!

Now doesn't your little diving frog look all cool as he's having fun on his holiday? This is such a cute card. Totally brilliant of you to use the netting, and I have to admit that I smile each time I look at your little creation. You've captured the summer holiday theme so wonderfully. Well done, girlfriend!
