Summer Birthday


Hello, I am back today with a fun card for the latest Topping over at Seize the Birthday! Barb is our wonderful hostess and she has chosen Summer Activities for us this time around. I love this idea since we are smack dab in the middle of Summer here in Florida, and boy oh boy is it HOT! I had so much fun putting this card together and was pleased as punch with how it turned out!

Here is a close-up view.

Card Details: Sunny Studios-Flip Flops and Seals, Pool stencil is MFT, the Happy Birthday dies are MFT, the sun is from Ellen Hutson, I used Copics, Prismas, and Oxide Inks. I ripped some copy paper to make the edge of the water. I often find myself layering dies a lot now as I love the sturdy feel and think it makes the quality of the work so much better. I love gradient sentiments too.

Before I go I want to take a moment and thank Lorraine for being such a wonderful Surprise Party Guest these past two months! It has been wonderful having you on board with us and we have enjoyed your cards so very much! Take care!

I am going to join Time Out one more time for their Tropical Challenge.

I am also going to play along over at Make My Monday where the challenge is Coloring.

Now, pop on over to Seize the Birthday and check out Lorraine’s card and the rest of my fabulous team’s work showcasing things to do with summer!

Take care and I hope you will join us at STB, Nanc’
