Ahhh, the wonderful summer time!  My BFF in Hawaii is a very busy lady working on finishing off her new home.  She is a real "do it yourselfer" and is burning the candle at both ends.  I want to send her this card and let her know she needs to take some time off to regenerate her "batteries" so to speak!  This image sure says it all!  I used my Copic's to color it, inked the edges after being cut out with my Nestabilities then raised it with pop-dots.  I used quite a few layers and added the flowers for a little glam.

I entered this in the weekly challenge over at DYSU, the theme is "Orange", Paper Play Challenges, theme "Citrus Splash" and Pear Tree Designs, theme "Summer Delights".
