Celebrate Life

Hi, Friends......

I am here with a bright summery card that I am using for a thank you card for a young gal who saved up some money to donate to the Crisis Pregnancy Center where I volunteer. I thought she deserved a special card for her efforts and generosity.

I love the colors on the Winnie & Walter June Color Challenge with Heather H.

I used a groovy stamp from MFT and colored it with my Distress Markers following the palette. The iridescent sequins I used match IRL, but took on a completely different color in the photo....go figure! (sigh)

Products used include:
My Favorite Things - Celebrate Life (sadly, discontinued)
Versafine Ink in Onyx Black
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Audrey Cutaways die set (has scallops)
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set
Sequins from stash
Scraps of patterned paper from stash

Hope you enjoyed this happy card. Thank you so much for stopping by today.

    Re. the sequins - I wonder if you were wearing a colour like royal blue when you took the photo? It might be reflection?
