hello...

Hey there... hope everyone in the US had a wonderful 4th of July.  We had a nice one, but it turned a bit windy and chilly toward the evening.  However, my little guy was completely satisfied with all the fireworks he got to light off so that made up for the turn in the weather!  Got sometime today to make a card.  This one is for Less is More (earth tone colors) and CAS(E) this Sketch.  Oh and I think I will pop this into Virginia's View die cuts challenge, too.
For this card I used the newly released Clearly Whimsy Stamps set Happy Everything and the Clearly Whimsy Stamps Hello word die.   I used two shades of green (SU!'s Gumball Green and Pear Pizzazz) and kraft (SU! Crumb Cake) and stamped the two starburst images from the set.  The "hello" was die cut twice from kraft and white cardstock and adhered together slightly offset (although you can't really see it).  After adhering the "hello" I added some sequins in the same shades of green and little wood veneer stars.  I hope this is "earth tone" enough for the LIM challenge... they can be a tough lot!

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white & kraft; Stamps:  Clearly Whimsy Stamps; Inks:  Stampin Up!; Die:  Clearly Whimsy Stamps; Sequins:  Ellen Hutson; Wood veneer stars:  Studio Calico
