The Ants are marching One by One - Challenge 84# at 613 Avenue Create

Another busy day and I forgot to schedule my post. I've been to church this morning where several of the choristers were away, so we had quite a small choir. We also had a baptism so church ran a bit longer than normal. This afternoon I've been standing with a couple of my daughters at a trunk show for Katie's new venture into the world of Ju Ju Be bags. She and another girl were having a show in our local park. It was in the shade and so cold!!!  I've come home after chasing my husband up to go back and pick up our trestle table (it won't fit in my car). The fire is going and I'm in the cold lounge room editing my post.
We have a new challenge starting at 613 Avenue Create and the theme is Anything Goes with the Optional Twist of  - Sights/Sounds/Tastes of Summer.
We are sponsored by QKR Stampede, Flat Friends, Lee's Digi Shop and The Stamping Chef. I was able to use this fun digi from QKR Stampede.
Here is my card....

SU Pacific Point cardstock for the cardbase
White cardstock from stash
DP from DCWV - The Blossoms & Butterflies Stack 12x12
Digital image is from QKR Stampede - Share a Slice
Sentiments are from Annabelle Stamps - Whimsy Flowers Set
Summer was made with Craft Market Alphabet Diecuts -adhered to Pacific Point cardstock and trimmed
Copic Markers
Nestie Dies - Standard Circles - Small and Large
Memento Black inkpad
Glaze Pens to highlight the watermelon seeds and on the ants to give them a glossy look.
D/S tape roller
Foam Dot - just one this time for one side of the sentiment, lol....
