Get Your Sunnies On You'll Need 'em

Good morning all!
We're finally seeing a bit of summer up here in Bonnie Scotland!
Now, it's Monday again so it's back to work for me but first....
It's also time for a new challenge over at
where your theme for this week is
Here's my card!

I opted for Hot Neon Colours! lol
The colours are even more vibrant in real life! lol
The image I have used is Digi 20002 Sm Ice Cream Bear!
What else would a polar bear do when it's hot?
The sentiment is from Eureka Stamps too Digi  20105 Chill Out
My card base is a 5"x5" gatefold.
The Neon papers are by papermania.
I coloured the image with promarkers & used the cuttlebug swirls 
embossing folder on the orange paper.

The image panel just tucks behind the top part of the sentiment 
to keep the card closed!
As you can see, I added the neon papers to the inside of the card too!
I hope you like it & I can't wait to see what you create for the 

I'd like to enter this card in a couple of challenges:
Come & Get It - Feature A Creature
One Stitch At  A Time - Anything Goes With Sweet Treats
Pile It On - Summer Or Winter

Allsorts - Inspired By Summer
