"Holiday Time"

 A closer look at the image!
 My homemade flower!
The inside of my card.
I hope for most of you that the summer brings around a family holiday. The time we spend having fun with our loved ones is so important. With that thought in mind I thought about the family vacations when our two kids were teens. Our daughter loved to shop and had to look fashionable, she needed to have plenty of time to get ready and then of course a latte to get her going. When I saw this cute stamp from The Paper Shelter I had to use it for our "Holiday Time" challenge. She is called "Spring Style" and can be found here.
I colored my stamp with Copics. I used some of the brighter oranges and I have to admit that I liked the way it turned out. I also made my own flowers...I am quiet proud of them (truth be told I copied one that a dear friend of mine  Glenda Brooks. She makes some of the best flowers and I have kept one she sent me thinking someday I would make one like it. I used Queen and Co  "Topping Set".
Some pretty die cut leaves and pearls finish my card. 
Be sure and hop over to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog and join in on the fun. I can't want to see what you choose to represent your "Holiday Time". Remember if you use a Paper Shelter image you can win $30 to spend in the store....a great deal for you!
I am entering this card at the following challenges:
My Song: Yesterday (The Beatles)
Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away
Now it looks as though they're here to stay
Oh, I believe in yesterday
Suddenly, I'm not half the man I used to be
There's a shadow hanging over me.
Oh, yesterday came suddenly
Why she had to go I don't know she wouldn't say
I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday
Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
Oh, I believe in yesterday
