HM Happy Summer White on White Challenge

This week's HM challenge is brought to us by Carolyn (who BTW is celebrating her blogiversary with blog candy) and is the reverse of last week - remember how we couldn't color our images last week, but we could use color in any other element? Well, this week we can only color our images and have only white for the rest of the project. Arrgghh! This was tougher for me than last week's, but that's what a challenge is for, right?! I came up with this happy little Mudpie in a Citrus Bath and since he looks so cool and refreshed, it had to say something about summer. I used my Label One Nestie to cut him out and yes, it is slightly askew. I though about making the Nestie upright and suggesting that Mudpie might be a bit tipsy, but I decided that perhaps it's just lemonade and left the image upright. I used my Tiny Bubbles embossing folder for the background, a MS border punch for the bottom and colored three extra lemons for accent. The flower is punched with a MS punch and I put my new SU jumbo brad in the center. Hope you like it - I'm pleased with how it came out. Be sure to check out what the rest of the DT did for the challenge, and don't forget to stop by Carolyn's blog and check out her Blogiversary post. I hope you're having a wonderful week. Thanks for stopping by.
