Summer Sherbet at Sunfish

We have some big news at Gecko Galz.  I'm very excited to help announce the extremely talented new members to our design team:  Kristin Rhodes, Sharon Rogers, Jules Eickmeier, Carol Salisbury, and Debi Ryan.  Check it out HERE.


Kristin at Twinkle Twinkle is hosting the  Summer of Color challenge again.  This time around the six-week long party is focusing on and creating art based upon the luscious color combos of our favorite ice cream flavors.  Can't beat that! Week One's prompt is Rainbow Sherbet.



I wanted to do something modern and fun.  I used my Spellbinders Nestabilities Curved Rectangles for layering my rainbow sherbet.  My image is from the Gecko Galz Girlfriends ephemera set, and all the yummy patterned papers are from the Gecko Galz June release, Lemonade paper collection.  The plaid ribbon is from an early Gecko Galz prize.  My three rainbow sherbet colored pearls are from my stash. 


I'm also entering this card in  TallyScrapper Try Something New card challenge hosted by one of our Gecko Galz design teammates, Barbara Bird.  And Gecko Galz is sponsoring the prize!  My something new is stacking (layering) nestabilities dies using several Gecko Galz papers.  (I normally use just one). 


I think this card works well for an ice cream challenge too, so this is my second entry at All Sorts Challenge Week 158.


We sisters-in-law have fun getting together.  This summer marks the tenth anniversary of my SIL's lake property, Sunfish.  So I made this card to give to her when we get together at the lake to celebrate the Fourth of July and the Sunfish anniversary.

Wow, it's fab - although modern it also reminds me of being a teenager in the seventies - big floppy hats and halter neck tops - I just love it.

I really love the stacked framing you've done on this card. You've used the rainbow sherbet palette beautifully.
