Summer – Clean and Simple

Hello Ladies!

I had very little time yesterday to play in my craft room.  I did manage to get a card made for today.  I will have to be a busy bee and work around Zoie this weekend to get my other cards made .

I needed to do my card for today’s post and I had no idea what I was going to do.  I decided to check out my challenge blogs.  I was immediately drawn to the color challenge at Color Throwdown.

I thought these colors would be fun to play with.  Now I needed a layout.

I saw the sketch at Clean & Simple and knew it would challenge me.

I was unsure what I would do with the 3 panels.  I pulled out my catalog and checked out my stamp sets.  I thought I could flip the sketch and use the Summer Silhouettes set to do this challenge.  Here is what I created from these 2 sketches.

I decided to use a ribbon rather than a sentiment.  I also used some of my retired designer series paper to make an envelope. 

Thanks for visiting me today.  I am working on my swaps for Monday evening.  I got my base finished and the pieces punched.  Now I need to sponge the edges and then I can put my card together and it is done.  Have a Super Saturday!
