Soak Up the Sun

Hi Friends! 

I have another Clean and Simple card to share today! It's another fantastic challenge at Inspired By Stamping and this week Joanna has a sketch for you to try. 

Here is my card! :-)))
Here is the Sketch:

I totally went away from my norm. Instead of reaching for my very loved seam binding or crochet trim, I decided to find inspiration in my overflowing ribbon jars.  I used this ribbon a lot when I lived in Hawaii so I thought why not bring it out again, so that was the start to my inspiration.  My papers are from Cupcake Cards and Crafts and is part of a collection called "Last Summer".  My stamped images are from Inspired By Stamping: Inspiring Sentiments which is nested inside Fancy Labels 3

The sun was cut using my Cricut, and buttons, pearls, and a flower were the final finishing touches. 

I hope you will join us this week! I love love seeing your wonderful creations in the IBSIC gallery.

I see Papercraft Star is having a Here Comes Summer Challenge, so I will join in over there!

Thanks for peeking!
