Whimsy Inspiration Challenge #49

 Hi Everyone!!
It's Whimsy Inspiration Challenge time again! Our theme this week is "Summer Fun!"
We'd love for you to join us! You don't have to use a Whimsy image, but it would be great if you did! And it doesn't have to be a card - we welcome all paper projects. Don't forget to check out the challenge details - and your chance to be a Guest Designer with us - over at the Whimsy Inspirations Challenge Blog!

Well it's the middle of winter here in Australia, and I've been struck down with the dreaded Flu, so some "Summer Fun" sounds great right about now! I didn't feel much like card-making - but getting on with it and focusing on a bright, summery card was the perfect cheer-me-up!

This cute image is "Little Bear Ducky" by StampArt Design by Kathryne, available from Whimsy Stamps. The adorable image comes with the Bonus Sailors Hat (which I couldn't resist!) and a heap of cute sentiments (yep used one of them too!), so it's a great value for money set!
The Little Bear's rubber ducky is paper-pieced to make it look different from the real duckies, and I used Sweet Stop Sketch - SSS168.

Hope you like it!

And a close-up...

This is an awesome creation! Love the color palette you've used, the paper piecing is amazing and adore how you've done the sentiment.
