Didn't use a lick of patterned paper on my card:
Although I couldn't resist using some gingham pp in the bg of the pic.......:)
I inked up one of the images from Hero Arts Floral Blossoms set with Ranger spun sugar, worn lipstick and peeled paint distress markers and did some first and second generation stamping on a piece of Stampin' Up confetti cream cs. Butterfly from one of the labels in the Hero Arts set Just Because was embossed then colored with distress markers. The embossed sentiment from an old SU set was die cut with a Spellbinders Nestie. Edges were lightly distressed with Ranger antique linen distress ink.
Other Materials Used: Stampin' Up old olive and raspberry ripple cs, Michael's black pearls
Temps reached 99 here in upstate NY again yesterday and I've all but given up on our lawn and flowers :( I'm thankful for ac but don't want to spend my whole summer indoors either!! Hubby and I went to see the new Spiderman movie yesterday to get out of the house - you will not believe one of the design elements I kept seeing in the architecture!!! Yep, HEXAGONS!!!! My hubby just shakes his head when I point this kind of stuff out to him :)
Stay cool and thanks for all your lovely comments!
