looks like summer...



Hi there...finally home from work and dinner is done...it was just me and my daughter tonight...which means more time in the craft room for me...yay! I have a summery card to share with you. It's for several challenges. The Shabby Tea Room Week #14 is called "Summer Fun" and they want you to share what you like to do to have fun in the sun. The Waltzing Mouse is having their second sketch challenge (see above) and the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #63 is using some of my favorite colors! Check out that yummy looking icing! and let me apologize for the poor lighting in my pic...inside picture and if I brighten it too much, it washes the color out!

So, can you guess what I like to do in summer...sit on the beach! My card started with the WRMK Tiffany's papers...there are so many different styles in that paper pad. The colors of the icing are picked up in the paper and that was my color palette for the Lockhart Stamps beach chair...I colored the frame of the chair a gray at first, but it just didn't "pop" so I went over it with black and it picked up all the black in the paper. I love this little stamp! I colored it with copics of course. The flowers are cut from Martha Stewart's Chrysanthemum punch and sprayed with pearl Glimmer Mist. The Making Memories brads are sparkly too! The flowers are Prima and all the edged are inked with pink studio g ink.

Thanks for stopping by...I'll be back with another one real soon!
