Hello Summer

Hello everyone! I haven't abandoned my blog I swear. I just got back from a 2 week long vacation/work trip to ITALY!!! Yes it was really hard to say yes to the proposition of presenting my work in Italy :P We had so much fun but we are exhausted now. It took all I had to get this card done. Hopefully by this weekend I'll have some energy to really get back to crafting and maybe share a few pictures from our adventures. But today I wanted to share a super simple card I made. I am using the new My Thoughts Exactly Hello Summer stamps which are perfect for the July Challenge ;)

The paper is all from Echo Park's Hello Summer line...perfect for use with the Hello Summer stamps! I used a punch to make the little sentiment banner and bent it before sticking it down to add a little dimension. The little sun at the top is from the Hello Summer set, I just used an craft knife to cut it out after stamping it. The sun is popped up on a foam dot for more dimension. And I didn't leave the inside completely blank...

Please ignore my terrible path lines, I'll keep working on those. I thought the little beach ball would make for a fun accent inside. Now here is a better look at the dimension on the front.

I hope you enjoyed my card today and don't forget to get your entries in for the July Challenge! There is still plenty of time left :)

Happy crafting!
