Kenny K Challenge 5

I really enjoyed making the card for last week's Kenny K Challenge and wanted to participate again. The theme this time is 'In the Summertime'. A total opposite to last weeks dark side theme. This was actually the first KK image I bought as I knew I was going to use it for my cousin's birthday card at the end of August. She is at that awkward teen stage and when I saw this image I knew it was the one for her.

I used a very summery yellow colour scheme. The designer paper is from SU. I like the I-Pod and I've coloured it to match her pink one - is there nothing better than walking out in the sunshine listening to your favourite music? The thing is with these images is that they are so detailed and so the card itself can be kept quite simple in style and layout as the image can do all the talking.

The summerness of the card means it can also be entered into these challenges:
Incy Wincy - Summer Fun
One Stop Craft Challenge - Summer Fun
Stamps R Us - Digi Image
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Summer Days
Creative Card Crew - Cute and Girly
Cute Card Thursday - Whateva! (This seemed to be my cousin's favourite answer when younger so it fits in well)
