 Lisa D. from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles is this month's

She created a brand new digital kit to mark the occasion and asked several
of her crafting buddies to help out by creating samples for the July/August edition!

For a chance at winning the Patterned Papers section of this kit...
Simply leave a comment on this post and be a follower of my blog!

You have until 11:59 p.m. EDT on Friday, July 8th, to submit your
comments for a chance to win one of the above mentioned prizes.

For the hop today, I used 3 different portions of Lisa's kit -- A Taste of Summer Elements, 2 papers from A Taste of Summer Natural Textured papers, and 2 patterned papers from A Taste of Summer Patterned papers. 

I cut this card shape out on my Silhouette Cameo, with a file I found in the Silhouette Design Store.   The fish and backing layer were cut out with a Lawn Fawn stitched die.  The sentiment is from a Joy's Life Pun in the Sun sentiment set, cut out with a Spellbinders die.  Some sequins from Close To My Heart finished up the card.
