Summer Time Fun

Summertime Fun - Today's challenge at Sew Many Challenges is "Summertime." With the summer almost being over, we wanted to cling to it just a little bit longer.

My card today uses Sew Many Cards image "Bee with spring flowers." This image was the Friday Freebie a while back, so it can pay to get those images each week. You can buy it now in the Sew Many Cards Shop.

My image is colored with Copics and my DP is Miss Elizabeth. I distress with Ranger's black soot and cut the image and mat with Spellbinders. I also used 2 pink brads.
Today's Friday Freebie is this yummy cupcake image. You can get it here, but get it fast; as it is available today and today only.
My DP is Miss Elizabeth and I used 3 eyelets from Making Memories. My image and mat was cut with Spellbinders. The cupcakes were colored with Copics and I added some Stickles to the topping on the cupcakes and on the patches.
