Good morning crafty friends!
I hope all my US friends had a great Independence day and had a chance to see some fireworks yesterday! I had an awesome night last night celebrating our awesome country's birthday with family! Besides Christmas, the 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays! We went over to Harrisburg where my mother in-law lives to watch the fireworks show they have down by the river every year. She has a great view from her house, so we all camp out on her lawn to watch them. My father in-law made some delicious mexican food which made the night even better!
Now to some other fabulous news...as I mentioned the other day, I was asked to be one of Wee Stamps guest designers for the month of July! I was totally flattered and of course honored to be asked by the DT coordinator Mariska. And I just LOVE Wee Stamps, so I couldn't pass up this amazing opportunity!
I will have several cards to share with you throughout the entire month of July with Wee Stamps including some NEW releases at the end of the month.
Now onto the first card...
So excited I finally get to share them with all of you! I absolutely love working with Sylvia's beautiful stamps!
The digi stamp I worked with for my first card is called "Summer Fairy" and can be found HERE! Isn't she gorgeous?!! I had so much fun coloring her up!
Some more views...I LOVE the ribbon I used on this card! It's so soft and and I love the way the bow turned out!
The color combo on this turned out kinda interesting, lol. The colors came from the top most DP I decided to use. I don't think I would have ever dreamt up this kind of color combo, but I think it turned out lovely.
