Circle - Hey Friend

Busy, busy summer! Here is a recent creation inspired by summer. I decided to change things up a little and use a circle for my card base; the color is Groovy Guava. The patterned paper and stickers are from a really fun collection by Echo Park called Sweet Day; it's so adorable! I framed it with some white cardstock cut using my big circle cutter. Lastly, the butterfly is die cut from a piece of Baja Breeze and stamped with bits of images from the La Jardin Boutique set using Versamark ink.
Try to stay cool and dry!

I'm editing this post in order to link up to this week's Tuesday Trigger challenge at Moxie Fab World. I couldn't believe it when I saw the picture; many of the colors of the paints are the same as the ones in my card. Plus the circle shape of the paint cans is reflected in the shape of my card, as well as the white ring around each color from the can reflected in the white ring border of my card. I really like this picture and hope to create some more cards based on it soon. The challenge deadline isn't til Sunday so there's plenty of time for you to join in the fun too!

Summer Travel

Celebrating summer travel today with this card. My colors are More Mustard, Not Quite Navy, Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla. The patterned paper is from a fall collection by SU a few years ago. I stamped the airplane image from SU's Sentimental Journey on a square of cardstock and then sponged the edges with some Vintage Photo Distress Ink to help it blend with the slightly worn/aged look.
Have a great Independence Day weekend and be safe wherever you travel! God bless America!
