Good morning to you! If you are here for the Cards for Kids Blog hop/blog candy be sure to click HERE! : )
I have a summery card to share with you today. I know it is only January, but I have to be honest......I am already tired of winter! I am tired of the cold, tired of bundling everyone up before heading out the door. Tired of the short days. I am longing for warmth and sunshine.....so I tried to "bottle" it up in a card! : ) I used JustRite's Sea Shell Bay set. I was going for cool water inspired colors for my card. I stamped the image in shades of green and blue using several ColorBox inks. I sprinkled it with clear embossing powder. This set coordinates with Spellbinder's Labels Twenty-Two die. I used it for the image as well as for the burlap behind it. I wanted to bring it a bit of "rustic-ness" to the card.
I wanted to create a little grouping in the corner so I stamped some of the shells from the set in brown and gave them a bit of color with my Copic markers. I also added a bit of real sand to the edges and added a pearl to the center of the one shell. I added tulle, a few acrylic pieces from Prima and a bit of "rope" from SU!
My son has an eye doctor appt. tonight. He has been complaining of numerous headaches. I am thinking it is probably his need for glasses! So we will have to see what the doc says tonight. And I got his grades for his first semester in high school. He made honor roll! I am so proud of him!
Off to work I go!....... Have a great day! : D
