This past weekend we went to a Kids Cookout to celebrate the end of Summer Vacation and the start of the school year. I wanted to give our friends who hosted it a little Thank You card and since it was for the kids I thought it would be fun to use nice bright colors and playful patterns. I used another Verve Anni-Verve-sary sketch for this card. I started with a Crumb Cake base and then layered Real Red with some Play Date dsp. I used the retired Corner Rounder punch on both layers and then sewed around the edges. The banner strips are Tempting Turquoise and I finished them off with a half pearl. I again used some retired Alpine Originals Felt Ribbon. The main image panel is stamped in Early Espresso using the Great Friend frame and then cut out by hand. I added a Loop to Loop Rub on from the retired Hostess Set. I then added a few Beautiful Wings butterflies with half pearls in Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Crushed Curry.
I have to run today. I’m teaching a class at my Moms house and then we have to be home in time for a soccer game this evening for Colin. Have a great Monday!
