Summer Fun Challenge

Just a quick post as it's so lovely in the garden today. I couldn't resist the challenge over at Sweet Stamping this week. It's a sketch which I've rotated and come up with this which I also couldn't resist caseing from Debi Pipin a US demonstrator whose blog I found recently. I've used some different punches as some of the ones she used are not available here. Can you tell what I've used for the body? Leave a comment and let me know.
I've been a little naughty and used a border punch which is SU but not here. It was a gift from a friend when we visited recently. I've also used a crimper and a few glitter spots from my stash, but everything else you can buy from Stampin' Up! UK. The stamp set is Life's a breeze and the accessories are button latte and the pretties kit. Even the navel of this bathing beauty is a bead spacer from the pretties kit. I used the distressing tool from the cutter kit to give a 'frayed' edge to her beach mat. It's also given me the chance to use some melon mambo spotty ribbon, cardstock and ink along with soft suede and more mustard.

It's kinda cute don't you think!!! Now I must away to the sunshine and hope the sun will melt me into a bikini shaped body!!!! You gotta have a dream.........!

Enjoy what's left of your weekend.
