Fun in the Sun

Good morning, and happy Thursday, everyone!  It's time for the newest Dare to Be Sassy Thursday challenge.  Yay!  This week the theme is...

Fun in the Sun - Monochromatic Yellow

Now, I'll be the first to tell you that yellow is NOT my favorite color.  Mostly because I'm so pale...if I wear yellow I look jaundiced.  So, I tell myself that I don't like it and then I'm not sorry that I can't wear it.  =D  Amazing how that works.

Anyway, as much as I hate to admit it, I had a blast with this challenge!  My card ended up reminding me of warm sunny days, hanging out at the lake with my friends...and that old song "Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini."  (It's been stuck in my head for days.  Now it can be stuck in yours.  You're welcome.  LOL!)  =D


I've used one of Sassy Studio Designs' newest images...Polka Dot Bikini Sassy, available in the store.  I colored her with Copics, then added a touch of gold Stickles (on the beach ball top and the earring) and Crystal Effects on they eyes, because I love shiny eyes. =D  Roses and gems are from my stash.  Ribbon is from JoAnn Crafts.  The sentiment is from Create with TLC.

Looking for more inspiration? Head on over to the Sassy Studio Designs challenge blog to see what the rest of the DT created.  I do hope you'll play along with us this week!  Remember, you don't need to use a SSD image to enter...but if you do, you can enter TWICE!  The details on how to do that are on the challenge blog, so don't forget to check it out.  With all the fabulous new images being released, who wouldn't want as many chances to win as possible?  =D 

Don't forget...SSD is three years old this month, so they'll be having mini releases every Saturday all month long.  These new images are so fab... you won't want to miss a single one!  Also, the SSD Paper Craft Planet group will be hitting 700 members, so we'll be having a huge celebration for that, too.  Keep an eye on the blogPCP page and/or Facebook page to find out details!

Thanks for stopping by, and we'll see you soon!
