Happy Saturday!

It’s time for another DD/DDA challenge!   This month it’s all about summer.   Jami threw down the challenge this month to come up with a card/project that screams summer.   Our only requirement was to use mini brads and NO buttons.   Well guess what I did.   I put buttons on my first draft!  I really suck at absorbing details when I read them.   I always have to read things twice, but I guess I missed reading that twice.   Anywho… back to the drawing board and the buttons came off 🙂

I had a tough time with the ‘screaming’ part,   Nothing about summer screams at me but the heat.   I do relate summer to rest and relaxation though, so I thought I would make a relaxing card.   Oh, and butterflies!   I always think of butterflies when I think of summer.


I took off the buttons I had originally used and replaced them with candy dots.   Dang, those buttons looked cute, too! 🙂  For the butterfly, I stamped with pencil erasers in the More Mustard, Bashful Blue and Pumpkin Pie, then die cut the shape.


Here are my deets:

Stamps:  Our Craft Lounge‘s Coastal Wishes (sentiment)

Colors: Pumpkin Pie, Bashful Blue, More Mustard, GP White, Washington Apple dp

Ink: Versafine Black Onyx, Pumpkin Pie, Bashful Blue, More Mustard

Accessories: ribbon, candy dots, mini flower brad, primas, circle punches, curvy rectangle nesties, swiss dots ef, pencil erasers, Butterfly nesties die, dimensionals


Thanks for stopping by!   Hope you have a blessed day!
