Summer Fun with A Color, Sketch and Theme Challenge :-)

Hi Again Stampers! 

I hope all of you are enjoying your weekend!  My hubby had to work the whole weekend, so I decided to spend some time designing cards :-)  Any excuse to spend time crafting, right??

I just love the fresh color combination in this week’s Pals Paper Arts PPA258 Color Challenge, so I pulled out my new stamp set, Awesomely Artistic and combined it with the Freshly Made Sketches FM193 Sketch Challenge and the Simon Monday “Summer”Challenge. .

 Flowers and dragonflies definitely remind me of the summer vacations that we would take to rural New Yorl- my grandparents had a cabin on a river and the dragonflies would be flitting around as well as the blossoming summer flowers...I remember as a young child chasing the rabbits and trying to catch one :-)  Oh, to be a kid again- lol!!

If you have not had a chance to do so, I hope you will find the time to visit the above challenge sites to check out the Design Team samples as well as their galleries-wonderful inspiration from all!

This was a quick, easy card to create- stamp the images using Stāz-On® Midnight Blue ink onto Whisper White cardstock, color with Stampin’ Write markers, trim and mount onto Night of Navy and Cucumber Crush cardstock.

Add a few Rhinestones and you are finished!  

Easy, peasy as one of my fellow demonstrators loves to say :-)

Ink: Cucumber Crush, Stāz-On® Midnight Blue; Stampin’ Write Markers- Cucumber Crush, Night of Navy, Watermelon Wonder, White Gel Pen

Thanks again for visiting- if you have any questions, please let me know in the comments.   Hugs and have a wonderful week, my friends!
