Sunshine and Rainbows

Hi everyone-
Well I definitely enjoyed my day today!!
It’s so funny how how you can accomplish when you have an empty nest.  LOL
Well I’ve noticed that the theme around blog land seems to be Summer and Rainbows.
I think everyone is in the Summer mood and I am loving it, cause Summer vacation trips are around the corner and I seriously can not wait.
So today I created this card using Tiddly Inks new image called: Wryn- Sweet Summer and I adore this image!!!  I really had fun coloring her lollipop.  When I saw the lollipop it made me think of Magic Mountain for some reason.  So anyhow here is my extra card this week.
And a close up of the coloring and glossy accent applied to the first lollipop! Yummy!!!SunshineandRainbowsa
I used my very neglected MME: On The Bright Side- One paper.  The colors matched so well and I was so happy that I had it laying around, cause boy do I struggle putting my papers together!!  So of you artist out there make it look so effortless, but for me it’s what I struggle with the most and takes me the longest.   so if anyone has any advice on how I can speed up my picking process, I would really, really appreciate it!!!  Seriously.

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:
