Saturday for Fun...

It's been awhile since I made a card just totally for fun...well, still inspired by challenges but for no other reason than I was inspired to. I love this image from Bugaboo stamps and thought it was perfect for all the summer challenges out there! Here's the challenges I was inspired by for this one:
1. 4 Crafty Chicks - get your bling on: got that fun rhinestone flourish in the corner...every pup needs a little bling!
2. Alota Rubber Stamps - circles: got three different types for my image
3. BasicGrey Challenges - sketch + a BG item: the patterned paper is from the Lime Rickey paper pad
4. Catch The Bug Challenge Blog - water
5. Charisma Cardz Challenges - animals/4 legged friends: although you can't see all four of my pup's legs, I'm assuming they're there! :)
6. colourQ - early espresso, calypso coral, pool party, island indigo, and white: this is the first time I'm using the new SU! colors and gotta say I love'em, they also went perfectly with the BG paper altho it does have a few other colors in it...hope that okay!
7. Craft Your Days Away Challenge - summertime
8. Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog - summertime and the living is easy
9. Crafty Sentiments - polka dots: kinda hard to see but I used a polka dot embossing folder on the orangey layer
10. Creative Card Crew - animal antics
11. Delicious Doodles challenges - flourishes and bling
12. Delightful challenges - dog days of summer (summer or summer heat)
13. Die cut Dreams Challenge blog - animal antics
14. Do it with Digis - summer fun + digi

20. OLLCB - circles
21. Order of the Opus Gluei  - ways to beat the heat
22. Paper Playtime - digi monday
23. Phindy’s Friday challenge - delightful diecuts
24. pile it on - fun in the sun
