Happy Summer


Happy Summer and Happy Wednesday!

Today's card is my entry for this week's Summer Card Camp color challenge.  Lots of shades of brown and some red.  I like it !

I never look in the gallery until I finish my card.  There is so much talent in there that instant intimidation happens.  I upload my card and then I look at what everyone else has done.  By then it is too late to turn back!

Here is a picture of our assigned color palette for the week:

Even though we are in the thick of summer, I think it is a fun color grouping.  After all, we all have a pair of tan shorts and a red shirt or two in our wardrobe.  And so does my little summertime gal.

The stamp is a new Pure Innocence from MFT Stamps.  The sentiment is in the same set.  The fun part about clear stamps is that you can bend them.  That's how I got the curve for my sentiment.

I colored her with Copic markers and paper pieced both her shirt and shorts.  I added some sparkle and then cut out the image with an oval die from Spellbinders.  The mat is the coordinating scalloped die.

I will be back tomorrow - but now I need to head on over the the gallery and see what all the other students have created.

See you tomorrow.
