Celebrate Summer with Riley and Company!

Hello!  Is everyone enjoying their summer?  My kids have been making it a busy one with their various sport teams.  I am hoping to get off of my crutches soon and take the kids to the lake for some swimming!

In the mean time we are celebrating summer on the Riley and Company blog.  Sandye is our host this time around and she has challenged us with a summer theme.  Check out her inspiration on her blog!

I am letting my "hope" for fun show by making my card with Riley Waterslide, that you can find HERE in the Riley and Company Store.  I colored it with copics and used crystal effects to make the water gleam.  The card is made using a technique called the Bargello technique.  I used THIS tutorial from Splitcoaststampers.  

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:
Eureka Stamps - vacation
Markerpop - anything goes
The Crazy Challenge - my summer vacation

Make sure you check out the rest of the design teams' creations!  Have a great week!
