Summer Colors

oh, how I wish you could see these colors in real life. This lighting is stinky (humf)!I just so happened to be playing around in my happy place yesterday with the CTMH wipe n swipe and reinkers. I thought about summer and fun BRIGHT summer colors so I pulled out Cool Caribbean, Certainly Celery SU reinkers and Buttercup CTMH reinker. Loaded up the wipe n swipe and drug it across glossy card stock SU. It made this beautiful back ground. I new I wanted simple so I stamped in black CTMH ink with the A Friend Is CTMH stamp onto the swiped cs. Then I was brain dead. Just did not know what I wanted to do with it. Well today I was checking out Erica's blog 1creativelife and what do you know, she has a very similar color combo challenge on her blog. It immediately called to me so I ran into the happy place and finished putting this together. The cs is CTMH Sweet Leaf and Ocean (i heart that color) with a smidgen of Buttercup. Mental note, buy more Ocean cs. I added some "wish I were a dew drop" embellies and viola. Super simple but fun card. I makes me think of water and swimming. Nana, if you are reading this you and Pop should really get that pool!! Go check out Erica's blog she is one talented chick! Thanks for the visit.
