Nice suit! (PIO29)

This week, Doodle Pantry is sponsoring our 
'SUMMERTIME' challenge over at the Pile It On Challenge Blog!

Doodle Pantry is offering our winner THREE digital products! WOW!

Thank you so much, Doodle Pantry!! 

So, I don't know about you but I have honestly not spent a lot of time on Doodle Pantry not looking at their adorable bird digis. I must have had some serious tunnel vision for their feather-y cuteness to miss this awesome set, Summer Suits. (They have a matching flip-flop set, too.) I was so excited about this set, I made two other cards that I will post in the next couple days. 

I made this card with my husband in mind. He wears a business suit everyday to work and it was fun to see him in a swimsuit during vacation. He looks good in both though. :) 

I used my Nestabilities dies to cut my circle and scalloped mat. I colored my image with my Prismacolor pencils. The embossing was done with a Cuttlebug folder. 


The inside was created with left over scraps and another sentiment that came in the set punched out with my Stampin' Up oval punch.

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
