Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 98

This time, at Crafty Cardmakers, our host is Lin and she wants to see some 'fun in the sun'!

We're sponsored by
and

See the challenge blog for details.

I got to work with a lovely image from our sponsor, Saturated Canary. When I saw it, it reminded me so much of my elder on and daughter, and I decided it would be perfect for a birthday card from her to him. (And it's his birthday today!)

Despite, or maybe because there's almost five years between them. they've always got on really well. She used to worship her big brother, and he doted on his little sister. I've often felt sorry for our younger son because he was too close to both of the others to be part of that, although now they're all grown up, they all get on really well.

I coloured the image with Promarkers, after adding the speech bubble in Photoshop Elements. I kept it fairly simple otherwise, since my boys (both of them) are not fans of busy cards. I added a Sizzix die cut, a cute insect and a metal sun, both of which came from a local book shop that used to do some crafty bits.

I hope you can join us this time.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

A Little Bit Crafty where the theme is 'summer sun',
Kreativeinkauf where the theme is summer, sun, beach,
Happy Campers where the theme is summer,
Saturated Canary where the theme is 'winged things'. (Hope my insect embellishment is enough for your challenge.)
The Crafters' Cafe where the theme is 'the beach',
Crafting by Designs where anything goes,
I Love Promarkers where the theme is 'summer',
Little Red Wagon where they want us to 'use a sun',
Bearly Mine where anything goes,
Crafts Too where the theme is 'summer with beach colours'.
