It's a Summer Challenge at Pixie Dust Studio!

Today starts another new challenge at Pixie Dust Studio (Summer)make a card or project that reflects a summer theme - could be colors, images, sentiments...anything!  For my take on this challenge I used (Pixie Loves to Color) and I made this especially for my God Child.  She will be a Sophomore this coming school year and went through some bad choices through her Freshman year.   She will need to start summer school soon to catch up on her Math which she had failed on...  She is a bright girl and wants so badly to make her parents proud of her.
So I decided to make her this card to give her some encouragement and I think the sentiment says it all..  She loves the colors yellow & green and loves anything with apples.  So I found the perfect set of papers that I had in my stash, I also used Spectrum Noir and copic markers, pearls, Martha Stewart border punch and sentiment from Kaiser Craft...
And  don't forget to check out what the amazing DT have created for this challenge too.



Thanks for taking a peek!

  23. Oh Shirl, she is going to love this card! A boost of encouragement from you will mean so much to her. You are such a sweetheart for doing this. :o) The image is so precious and I just love the combination you colored her in. The papers are so sweet (hehe!) and I LOVE that border trim! The shiny red accents on the ribbon are perfect.. they look like happy little apples. :o) And of course the sentiment.. I agree, it is perfect and says it all. I am sending her lots of love and hugs! :o) Beautiful work, my friend!
