Well I missed the sunshine yesterday. I thought it was supposed to be sunny and warm. Did I miss that forecast. It rained all day. Did not matter as I spent the day working on my Summer Pocket Letter. I need to have it ready to mail out and I got it finished. I will share it when the person receives it.
Today I used the sketch challenge at Create with Connie and Mary
I thought the 3 horizontal elements would be perfect for washi tape. I have a lot of it and love using it as an element on my card. While I did do 3 horizontal strips of washi tape, I reversed the size as I wanted the green to be at the top. I also stamped my flower and did some shaded coloring. After I had it colored I cut it out and mounted it on my card. I then stamped Thanks from the Tin of Cards set. While stamping it I had some ink on my block that got on my card. I decided to find a stamp set that I could use to hide the ink. I found the perfect stamp in the October 2015 Paper Pumpkin. I stamped it on a piece of Watermelon Wonder and cut it out. I mounted it on top of the ink smear. My card was complete! Here is the finished creation.
