ATT: Dianne Guillinger and One Card - 17 Challenges!

Hi everyone! We got some rain at my house yesterday! It was nice and the earth just drank it up.  We need so much more, but I'm so thankful for what we did get.

I still haven't heard from Dianne Guillinger on winning the car sign.  If I don't hear from her by the end of the day I will be announcing a new winner tomorrow.

I've got a card today that I really enjoyed making.  The image is just a gorgeous one and was a treat to color.  It's called Buried Treasure and comes with the sentiment.  Lynne Stansbery is the artist and you can get the image at Squigglefly.

I colored with Copic markers and chalked the sky.  Stickles and a little bit of white puff paint that I left unpuffed added interest to the water.  The sentiment was printed directly on to the designer paper.  The paper is from Papertrey Ink.

I made this for several challenges which are all listed below.  There are just too many summer themed challenges going on right now and I couldn't pass them up!
