Summer Days - Timeless Tuesday 222

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend with lots of warmth and good weather!!
It's time for another Timeless Tuesday Challenge and I am your hostess this week. 

With summer vacation here for some or around the corner for others, the thought of lazy days, porch swings, lemonade, and children playing is not far from our minds. My challenge is to make a card or project that reminds you of summer and incorporate the breezy feel of sheer ribbon. 
 For my card, I couldn't resist using Kids Play because it reminds me of my children during this time of year; In constant play! I "rock and rolled" the image with Memento Desert Sand and Rich Cocoa for a dual color look. But then I felt there needed to be some green in it.  I took my water color pencil and shaded a bit within the hills while blending it with my water pen.  I stamped the sentiment with Memento Bamboo Leaves while the paper is MME The Sweetest Thing.  I finished it off with my sheer ribbon and flower and some rhinestone flourish from Prima.  I used this weeks Unscripted Sketch for my layout.
Don't forget to check out the other fabulous creations from the Timeless Tuesday Team!
