CUC DT Summer theme card

Can you believe it's already Summer? Wow! We at Craft Us Crazy are into our 11th challenge. We would love to see your "Summer Theme and/or Red, White & Blue" creations. The colors in my card reminded me of summer. Bright & colorful sunny days! This card is for my daughter's BFF Shannon for her birthday (she loves cupcakes).

I have to let you in on a little secret...........Tilda has been feeling neglected these days. She's a bit miffed that I've been spending so much time with Teddy Bo & Bea lately. LOL But she should know that we'll always be friends. Just look at how cute she is sitting on top of that yummy cupcake. Do you think Teddy Bo is hiding behind her ready to grab a bite out of that cupcake. LOL

Our sponsor for the first half of this challenge is Limited Runs. The randomly chosen winner will receive 3 digital images.

My card recipe:
Copics used to color Tilda:
Skin: E000, E00, E01, R20
Hair: E31, E35, E37, E41
Dress: R81, R83, R85

Ribbon from Michael's
Bow created with my FABulous Bow Easy
MS "Vintage Acrylic" flowers from my LSS
DP from pcCrafter: Franchelle Contreras' "Sweet Things"
Sentiment from Create with TLC: Linear Sentiments

Challenges I'm entering:
CMC: Brunette
Mad for Markers: Brown hair creations ~~ I won 2 Copics
Stamp Something: Pretty papers
Crafts 4 Eternity: #24 'R' - ribbon, rhinestones
My Partner in Crafting Crime: #29 Tutti Fruitti -- cherries in background mat

Hi Sharon,
Tilda looks great sitting up there.
I must admit that my Tilda collection is also feeling rather neglected because of Teddy Bo & Bea as well. But I am sure Tilda still loves me.
Thanks for joining in at Mad for Markers.
