Summery Thanks

Happy Monday, peeps!  Hope you all had a fabulous weekend!  My only complaint is that it went by too quickly!  I did get in a wee bit of stamping time, and found a few challenges that piqued my interest: the Just Us Girls summer challenge; the Less Is More color challenge of Tangerine, Aqua and White; and the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch:

A Day at the Beach is a great summery set, and since it was in the Occasions catalog from a couple of years ago, I never got to use it that much!  So I inked up a couple images and colored them with some Blends, then heat-embossed a sentiment on some Pumpkin Pie DSP and put them all together to create this:

You can't see it here, but there is Wink of Stella on each of the elements, and I added some Iridescent Sequins for some extra shine!  Such happy colors!  Thanks for popping in today!

And speaking of summer, Wayne helped Cassidy enjoy the pool this weekend:

What a great step-daddy he is!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

What a warm and summery card LeAnn. The shades and sun elements look brilliant in the challenge colours and I love how you embossed the sentiment on the DP. Gorgeous! Thank you so much for popping this in to us at Less is More xx

Bright, summery and adorable!

Thought I recognised the layout as the CASE this Sketch, you've done a top job in combining it with the LIM and Just Us Girls too

Love this LeAnne - it screams summer! I made a card for this challenge, but it finished up less CAS than I would have liked, so back to the drawing board!

Joan V said...

Wow, what a fun, colorful summer card. Love it!!!

Vicky Hayes said...

That perfectly placed grouping of sunglasses, sunshine, sequins, sentiment and banners looks effortless LeAnne!

Vicki Dutcher said...

Super fun use of the sketch! Love the color combo and of course, the sunglasses :) - Thanks for joining in at JUGS.

I love what you did with this design, so many lovely elements all clustered together but still perfectly CAS and great for our colour challenge. Thanks so much for sharing with us at Less is More, Anita x

Congrats on your win for this. It's a great card and I especially like the color combo.

LeAnne, congratulations. This card was a very worthy winner. Once again you show how easily you swing between styles and rock everyone of them.
