Welcome to The Cameo Spotlight Challenge #1

Are you guys ready? I know I am!  This week's challenge at The Cameo Spotlight is to use a card with the theme of "Summertime."  When I came across the image in the Silhouette store I was touched.  How sweet and innocent does this little boy look? It reminded me of my carefree summers as a kid. I imagine he's hanging out on his summer break, doing what little boys do.  I of course had to work a little magic - I transformed the image into a sketch image and then flood filled it with the sketch fill feature. The image was printed on vellum and then cut out using my Cameo.  You  guys know how much I love to rock the Print & Cut.  And hey, this is something else new - it's an easel card - my very first!  I've been wanting to do this for a while and I finally got around to it.  By the way, the sentiment is actually a line from the lyrics from one of my favorite songs - Summertime by George Gershwin.

Paper:  DCWV Cardstock & The Dazzle Stack, and Mat Stack, Bazzil White Smooth Cardstock
Metal Flowers:  Momental (I found them at Michael's)
Brads:  My Stash
Embossing Folder:  Cuttlebug Swiss Dots
Silhouette Cameo:  Print & Cut sketch image, banner and banner sentiment, shape card, leaves and frame

So what are you waiting for?  Get on over to The Cameo Spotlight blog to check out the other wonderful inspiration that the rest of the our fabulous design team has provided for you. We really hope you'll participate, this challenge is going to be spectacular.  Remember, this is wide open style wise, your card just needs a *summertime* theme and you need to use your Silhouette SD or Cameo in some way and you will be golden!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
