Good morning to you! It has been quite hot here in Chicago. We literally went from having our heat on one day to putting the air on the next! It has been in the 90's the last two days and it definitely feels more like July than May! So I've been inspired to create something summery.....hence this lil' Crafty Secret's card. What says summer more than raspberries? Especially glittery raspberries? ; ) The image is from the Garden Creative Scraps line. I inked it up a bit and added some ribbon. The ribbon was quite white which didn't look shabby enough for me, so I took my Copic E31 and ran it over the ribbon. This toned down the white quite a bit and matched the papers much better. I did a bit of machine stitching as well!

I have a mother's day card today that uses the Fancy Frames set by JustRite. I inked the background with my Colorbox ink and used clear embossing powder to set it. I stamped it again and cut out the middle portion by hand and popped it up on foam squares. The sentiment was stamped with Papertrey's olive and cut out with an oval Spellbinder's die. I backed it with a scalloped oval to make it stand out a bit. The flower and leaf were cut using a Papertrey flower die. I added a bit of thin thread and a pearl to finish it off. I added a few scallops here and there using my SU! scalloped border punch.
All of the papers used as well as the ribbon are by PApertrey Ink.
