Summertime with October Afternoon, Hero Arts & Imaginisce


  Happy Wednesday! This week at Betty Bee's Buzz we are thinking of summer. In my mind, summer is about chintz or polka dot patterns, blueberries, and watermelon. I tried to capture those ideas in my card.

  I was also inspired by the current challenge at The Pink Elephant#100 "Favorite Color Combo, Polka Dots and Crinkle Ribbon."  Red is my favorite color and I love polka dots!


  I found this Hero Arts stamp at my LSS in the 50% off bin. I immediately thought to stamp on kraft card stock and color with my prismacolor pencils. When I was creating this card, I was on Skype with HoneyBee Court Lee. It was Court's inspiration that inspired me to add the scallop border (MFT Die-namics) and the crinkled ribbon at the bottom. This fun paper by October Afternoon caught my eye. I added some bling hot rocks with my i-Rock tool...done :)

What comes to mind when you think of summer?  Link your summertime card, LO, or project at Betty Bee's Buzz today!

Hi June! I love this card - it is does capture all of those wonderful summery ideas! The "limeade" green ribbon really sets it off beautifully and the little bit of white on the flower petals really makes them pop! Beautiful!
