Summery Thanks

Alrighty, dinner is in the crock pot, brownies are baking slowly, and the dishes are done - so here's the card I made last night! I needed a thank you card for Shan's parents and using a sketch and colour challenge meant this one came together super quick while I listened to my ipod.

I've been meaning to do Mercy's sketch all week - I love this one! The colour combo of Ruby Red, Bashful Blue, Kiwi Kiss and Whisper White came from Color Dare 57.

I stamped the girl from Summer by the Sea in Stazon and watercoloured her VERY quickly with inkpads. You can't go over and over normal cardstock the way you can with watercolour paper - it pills. So this quick colour wash probably took all of 60 seconds. The circle layers were cut with the Circle Scissor Plus. I used some retired designer paper for my background and the Trio Flower punch flowers. I gently shape these using the thick end of my piercing tool and the foam mat from the mat pack.

For the inside I used a sentiment from the SAB Whimsical Words set and repeated some elements from the front of the card. This is the last month to earn this, or any other Sale-A-Bration set for free!
