Summertime spent in trees

When I was a kid, I used to love climbing trees. I have fond memories of doing this with my brother during the summertime. Then as I got older, I started to get scared about falling off. Shame, it was so fun. I just recently discovered Lily-Boo's Boutique and I seriously could not help myself! I downloaded 4 sets (each set has 6 images) and they're really well priced and sooo worth it. This image is from the "Circle Girls" set. I layered the bird, her arms, and the clouds. It looks really cool in person, but the dimension doesn't show up as well in pictures!I have 3 more different sets that you'll be seeing here soon!

This card is for a few challenges. I just needed 1 more challenge for a new personal record!
  1. The Fresh Batch - for Sketch Challenge #20
  2. Pile it On - for Challenge #3 Purple - There isn't much, but it's there (bird and shirt)! This card is also for DT submission :)
  3. Scrappy Frogs - for Challenge #6 Fun in the Sun
  4. Papertake Weekly - for Delightful Downloads - I downloaded the image from Lily-Boo's Boutique
  5. 2 Red Bananas - for Banana Split Sunday Summertime - When I reminisce about summer, I think of climbing trees during my childhood summer days.
  6. The Cuttlebug Spot - for Challenge #36 Celebrate Summer
  7. Creative Card Crew - for Challenge #16 Whatever the Weather - Sunny weather! Actually, maybe some June gloom (like here in Southern California)
  8. Use Your Stash - for June 22 Challenge Use 3 different patterned papers from 3 manufacturers - I used DCWV (Citrus Stack), S.E.I., and K & Company brands!
  9. The Corrosive Challenge - for Challenge #17 Let's Fold It - The fold follows the sketch! That made it easy :D
