g thanks

me again.  this time with a card.

fun colors, fun elements, basically all around fun stuff.  it's because it's summer.  there are so many awesome embellishments to use during the summer time.  not that i'm unhappy with other seasons, but summer colors are BRIGHT, my favorite.

so, i went with pink and yellow with splashes of neutrals (khaki/ brown/ and white) and i absolutely love the result.

the paper elements like the swirl, the ledger paper, admit one ticket, and the postage stamp are all from Anna Griffin, but they're all fun and funky, kind of different from what you normally see from AG in terms of style.  the yellow flowers are from Recollections, and if you recall yesterday's forgiveness post, you can tell that i'm obsessed with them.  completely.

the stamp is studio g as is the brown ink.  i used some washi tape (tucked behind those layers) from Tim Holtz and Target (yay for stripes!) basically, this card was a snap to make, all those layers were just waiting to get thrown together.

oops, almost forgot about the paper... all the patterns are Melody Ross.  couldn't help myself, i got a pack of those papers in beautiful summery florals--it's going to make for lots of colorful projects in the future.

well, thanks for stopping by, and happy mid-week hump day!  i am so excited for Friday, i really can't wait for the Olympics to start!  i will be glued to the screen once swimming and water polo come on (mostly water polo).  are you going to watch?

take care! xoxo
