friends... forever

Hello!!  Well, we had quite a switch in the weather this week.  We went from hot and sunny to warm and rainy!   I'm not complaining though because the hot weather was starting to wear on me a bit and so I'm enjoying the cool down!   Have a card to share that I made for several challenges:  ColourQ, CAS(E) this Sketch and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge (summer... butterflies are all over the place during the summer!).


When I saw the new CTS layout my thoughts went to a couple of different sets, but in the end I settled on the new SU! set Kinda Eclectic.   I stamped the sunburst image using Coastal Cabana and then over stamped it with the polka dot image using Early Espresso.  The butterflies were added using Pumpkin Pie and Kiwi Kiss inks.  The sentiment is from PTI's Wet Paint III set and stamped in black and Early Espresso inks.  Finished things off with some clear sequins on the butterflies and the polka dots.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white, Stamps:  Stampin Up! and PTI; Inks:  Stampin Up! and Memento; Sequins:  Pretty Pink Posh clear 4 mm and 6 mm
