A Flamingo Summer -- for Great Impressions Stamps

Happy weekend, fellow stamp lovers!  I have a fun summertime card to share with you today, and I'm also sharing on the Great Impressions Stamps blog.

I broke out the watercolors to create today's card because I wanted a 'watery' look to it all.

This card uses H287 - Floating Flamingo, and C366 - Hello Summer.  I stamped both H287 - Floating Flamingo and C366 - Hello Summer onto watercolor paper.  Then, I broke out my new Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pen and a water brush and got busy.

I created the rocking base using my Silhouette Cameo with a file I found in the Silhouette Design Store.  The sun is also a cut file from the Silhouette Design Store. The stitched dies are from Craftin' Desert Divas. Designer Papers are from Carta Bella.

We have a new challenge starting tomorrow at Great Impressions Stamps Challenge blog, so join the fun!

Check out all the wonderful stamps in the Great Impressions Online Store.

Great Impressions Stamps is sponsoring House of Cards Challenge Blog.  They are having an End of Term blog hop, and a challenge.  I made this card to support their challenge, using this picture for inspiration:
