Summer Card


This is a card I made for the Pajama Party at Paper Pretties. The challenge was to make a summer card using colors you would find in the Bold Brights color family. As happy as those colors are, I rarely use them. I think it's because I'm just an earth tone kind of girl. :) This was colored using Stampin' Up markers. For a finishing touch, I punched a slot with the horizontal slot punch to add some ribbon and paper pierced a line leading to the sentiment. . .you know me and my paper piercing! LOL This card is PERFECT for today because it's supposed to be in the 70's here. I am SO excited! I know some of you have seen the 80's already, but 70's is really good in Pittsburgh at this time of year! The girls LOVE to get outside and run around. . .and mommy LOVES when they sleep well at night! :) Hope you're having beautiful weather today too! Thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Rainy Day Friends, Sassy Circles (Paper Pretties); Paper- white (Georgia-Pacific), yellow (DCWV); Ink- Onyx Black (Versafine); Accessories- paper piercer, Tempting Turquoise, Green Galore, Pink Passion, Only Orange, Yo Yo Yellow markers (SU), horizontal slot punch (SU), double stitched ribbon (Darice)
