Summer Reflections

Yaaaaay! I made Top 3 at Make My Monday with my Paper Piecing card, so a big "Thank You" to their lovely DT.

My card today is for three challenges

 First is Make My Monday where they want to see some

second is Addicted to CAS with a theme of

and lastly, The Male Room with a masculine card in a theme of      REFLECTIONS

Here's my card

I stamped the lady in the boat twice in Black Archival ink, coloured one and cut it out. With the other one I cut it with a Nestie and stamped some flowers and plants on the riverbank. and coloured the water and reflections with an Aqua Painter. The first lady was then stuck over the other with 3D Pads. The Nestie image, also on 3D pads, was then placed on some green and red cards that had been embossed, and that had been wrapped with a navy ribbon. The finishing touches were the sentiment, bow, and the stamped dragonfly which was also on 3D pads.

Supplies :
Card = Lucky Limeade, Poppy Parade, Whisper White, Pacific Point, and white base FMS
Stamps = Summer by the Sea, Pocket Silhouettes, Organic Grace, and Tea Shoppe
Inks =  Black Archival, and Too many to mention, but all SU Write Markers 
Tools = Big Shot, Nestabilities, Fancy Fan and Dots EF's,  Stamp-a-ma-jig, and Aqua Painter
