Mail Out Monday

Hi All!! I hope you guys had a great weekend. I got a little stamping done but mostly I cleaned up my craft room. It was a MESS!! Geesh..it's crazy how fast papers and little scraps pile up. So after the cleaning I went to pick a set to make my card. I still wanted to challenge myself to use those stamp sets that I rarely ink up. This set is one of those. Its SU Sparkling Summer. I think I have made one card with it. *frown* I figured it would be perfect since we are in the middle of summer. For the image I colored it in with my prisma colors. I added some rhinestones on the sand to make it *sparkle* and did some doodling around the edges. Other stamps used is Micheals dollar sentiment. The card stock is SU Sky Blue, Olive, Caramel, Chocolate, and WW. The DP is from Hobby Lobby. The Sky Blue is embossed with my cuttlebug and sponged for depth. The ribbon is SU Pumpkin and the brads are SU pewter.

You're teaching me how "just go" with layering. I'd never trust myself to put all those colors and textures together but they look wonderful! I love your work!

That shadow on the umbrella is fantastic! How did you get it to look so realistic and just pop off of the page? I so wish I had your coloring skills. This is one awesome card!
