Jami needed someone to be the DD/DDA challenge hostess this month or it was just not going to happen. When I mentioned to her Brett just got out of school and that School's Out for Summer would be a fun theme, she said to go for it.
So these were the simple instructions, nothing too difficult as I know summer can be a busy time:
Challenge Focus: Create a project that screams school's out for summer. Do you like the beach, camping, the mountains, bbqing, you name it, whatever screams summer to you is fair game.
Required Element: Mini brads
Restricted Element: Buttons
I was cleaning and organizing the other day and found several sheets of pre-stamped images that I had stamped at Joy's house some time ago - and never used them. These fun bee summertime images by Stampendous were perfect for the challenge. I love July 4th - the barbecuing, the fireworks, the eating and drinking, family and friends, all of it, so I made my card a fun 4th of July card to celebrate summer.
The images are colored with Copics, highlighted with Glaze pens, Stickles and Flower Soft™.
The card is not any standard size as I built it around the images that I'd cut with a Nestabilitie Circle Die, so the finished card is 7-7/8" x 3-1/4".
