Summer's finally here!

The beautiful weather has inspired me and the card below is what I came up with. The little girl reminds me of lovely sunny days and carefree summer holidays - those were the days!!

I chose colours from the Soft Subtles colour group to give a light feel to the card. The little girl was stamped on white cardstock with black Stazon and coloured using inkpads and a watercolour pen. A small mat of lavender cardstock makes the image 'pop' against the celery designer paper. The sentiment is from the same stamp set, and the colours of the layers under it tie in with the colours used on the image (the scallop has been raised on dimensionals). A wire spiral with a small piece of pink taffeta ribbon attached finishes the card off.

Products used (all Stampin' Up!):
  • Stamps: Summer by the sea
  • Ink: black Stazon, Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery, Lavender Lace
  • Cardstock: Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, Lavender Lace
  • Other: Certainly Celery Prints designer paper, Hodgepodge Hardware, Pretty in Pink taffeta ribbon, 1 1/4" circle punch, 1 3/8" circle puch, scallop punch
