Let's get trendy - DTC61

Hi everyone, hope you're enjoying your day wherever you are! It's been really hot here over the last week or so. I haven't gotten much card making done at all!
I did of course find some time to do my design team card for Digital Tuesday. Our theme this week, chosen by the fabulous Shelly, is

Let's get trendy

This challenge was perfect for our sponsor's images from InStyle Stamps. Everyone on the team got to choose one of their many stylish stamps, be sure to check them out!!

I went with the image "Melanie" from their retro collection. When I look at it, it just so much reminds me of me. I most often wear blue jeans and cannot resist swinging when I take the kids to the park.
Be sure to go check out the other design team cards too, they are amazing!!

Image was colored using copic markers. I used one of my flourish stamps and stamped some flourishes around the image. Then sponged the edges using bashful blue ink. My colored papers are all from stampin up, white is from I heart papers (couture copic blending paper 80lb). I embellished with some butterflies, stickles and pink rhinestones.

I hope you get a chance to play in this week's challenge, so we can come see your trendy cards.
