Summer has arrived here, so we spent the day at the lake--actually got in the water, but only for a minute! Next time I'll stay in--hubby took about 5 minutes to feel comfortable. Hope you're having a great weekend & thanks for taking time to stop by.

The other day I started to clean up my craft area & came upon this stamped & clear embossed piece still un-inked. Well, that was all the excuse I needed to stop the clean up & start making a card! I sponged on Distress Inks squeezed lemonade, shabby shutters & antique linen. The die is my new border from My Favorite Things & I'd used it on a scrap of brown paper that was sitting there, so decided to make it part of the card. Took a couple more days, but eventually I added the other elements. I'm trying out different color combos than I'm used to, so that's why the sentiment is stamped with Memento Morocco. The brad attaching the flowers & the little button gave me the "3" of that color, so I'm hoping it works. Since I ended up with the little stamped & cut out flowers, I'm entering this month's Hero Arts challenge HERE. All the stamps are Hero Arts: Silhouette Grass, Dotted Flowers & Live Life.
