I joined late night stampers group, a wealth of great information. I also needed to get off my butt and do some challenges! The LNS challenge was to do a summer themed card. I also pulled out last week's sketch challenge from SCS, SC 230.
Lots of layers on this one, thankfully I used Summer Tea designer series paper for most of my base and to choose my colors. To make it "summer themed" I used seaside, because nothing says summer like seashells.
While I was on a summer time roll, thought of tropical drinks! Sorry for crooked scan, I was in a hurry and did not have time to take photos and wait for them to download! Hey, I got more stamping to do!!! Notice the rhinestone brads- that was my use of embellishments to fix my mistake. I caught and edge- don't you hate that??! So, I tried to fix it with markers and a little bling.
