Think Vacation!

Hello Everybody!

Summer is in full force!  Nice warm weather and afternoon showers :) and I love everything about it!  That's why I couldn't pass up this week's challenge at Inkspirational.  It was a color challenge and these colors are all summer to me.  Here's my card:



Here is the challenge: #23 Color Challenge.



My hibiscus is from the Life is a Beach cartridge (I think this one's my favorite!).  Then I used orange and yellow stickles to add a bit of glitter.  The sentiment is from Technique Tuesday Stamps.  My sister got them for me for Christmas and this is the first time I am using this set.  Better late than never :)  I used orange embossing powder for the sentiment also.  I used a hexagon embossing folder to add a bit of texture behind my flower.

Thank you guys for stopping by today!  Until next time my friends...stay cool! :)

Very nice job, Katy! I like the clean look and your creative use of the colors. It is interesting how only half of the white panel is embossed to give the flower a little more dimension. Thanks for playing with us at Inkspirational!
