Say...summer!

I remember working on a Christmas project earlier today, and now I've just finished a summer card. Moreover - winter here in Oz is about to finish soon, but already it feels like proper spring with the world bursting with blooms all around, and at Christmas time, instead of making a snowman and having snow-balls fights, we're probably going to fry ourselves again under the scorching sun.
Sometimes I think it's all too confusing for meh poor self... :P

But to the merit of the post - the card I created is my response to the Pink Elephant's team fresh challenge. As one would figure out, it says SUMMER. I gather this is at least the third challenge of this sort that I've stumbled upon in the last week or so. Is this the first sign of nostalgia for the passing by summer in the Northern Hemisphere? :)
The card also follows the last sketch by Card Positioning Systems. I really like working with their sketches!
Here's the card:

The ice-cream tops are glittered, but there is much less sparkle visible on the photo than there really is.

Thanks for looking,

  4. Hi it's not so much nostagia for the passing summer in the northern hemisphere as a sort of wish that summer would begin!! We seem to have had rain and more rain with a ten minute sun session in between!

    Love your ice creams - a great card.
    Thanks for joining us at TPE.

  5. What a sweet and colorful card! Love the glittered ice cream cones... I ditto Ann - we're still hoping the summer could finally last more than three days in row (I'm happy that at the moment it's a hot and not a rainy day). Btw, almost exactly two years ago I visited the GOR and thought I had to freeze immediatly... no wonder, as we flew down from hot and humid Cairns ;-) Now, I hope to visit Australia again to have that Christmas in the sun of which you told us :)
