Summer Friend

Good morning everyone! I hope you are having a great start to your weekend! There are lots of clouds out right now so I do hope we get some much needed rain!!! Last night all it did was sprinkle and make it very humid. And it's humid right now so bring on the rain!! I am getting ready to go to a quilt show in a nearby town with some wonderful ladies! I have never been to one and I am quite excited to see what it's about! 

Today's card was inspired by one I saw in a recent Samp It! magazine. In fact, I made several cards that were inspired by that magazine. The card I saw had a stamped background but I decided to used designer paper instead. The designer paper is from the Summer Smooches collection and is adhered to a piece of Daffodil Delight and then popped up onto a card base of Island Indigo. Then I cut a strip of vellum card stock and flagged one end and adhered it to the card. For my focal point, I stamped the greeting from Friendly Phrases onto a piece of Whisper White that I had cut with the Apothecary Accents framelits in Island Indigo. Then I used my Essentials Paper Piercing pack and pierced an oval around it. As a finishing touch I punched a flower from Daffodil Delight with the itty bitty shapes punch pack and added a rhinestone. Very easy!! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
