Laurie's Fabulous Favorites - Favorite Summer Colors

Hello friends.  This week at Laurie's Fabulous Favorites, Laurie is asking us to use our FAVORITE SUMMER COLORS.  That was an easy one for me as I'm especially drawn to bright pinks and oranges, and Summer also makes me think of the stamp set Some Like It Hot!


I started by masking off a square in the upper half of my card base and then blended Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks in the square opening.  Next I stamped the Flamingo from the Some Like It Hot set in black for a silhouette look.  I added the smaller Hibiscus flower and also a sentiment from the Words To Live By: Smile stamp and die set.


A few sequins and some bright pink bakers twine finished off this bright and fun card.  Make sure you check out Laurie's beautiful bright card and then play along right HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
