Summer Reading

This fortnight at Copic Creations the challenge is reading. This image was created by Elizabeth O Dulemba, and I decided to use it to create a fun card for a little boy in the hopes that it will inspire him to read more this summer...that reading is fun! I personally love to read, and I thought this was a fabulous theme for a challenge. Here are the Copics that I used:

BG11, G05, G09, E29, E35, Y26, Y28, C3, R20

The other challenges for this card are:
Bunny Zoe's - Summer Days
Creative Craft - animal antics
Simon Says - song in your head "The Lion Sleeps Tonight..."
Penny's Paper - anything goes
ABC Challenge - August (a good summer month to read in; also some kids are back in school)
S2G - Back to School
Crafty Ann's - lazy, hazy days of summer
Dutch Dare - anything goes
Stampin' for the Weekend - Back to School
Simple Doodles - get out of the box (using Cricut with my stamped image)
Rosie D's - all creatures
Creative Inspirations - anything goes
Card Patterns - sketch
One Stop Craft - summer fun
Secret Crafter - It's a man's world (male lion reading)
Kraftin' Kimmie - boy/guy card
Craft Your Days Away - a favorite thing (reading!)
