This is the perfect card right now as I have officially begun my two week vacation! Or as the DP says.... "This was the beginning of the summer holiday...." I did this card for the Splitcoast sketch challenge #287.
First, I fell in love with this Lockhart stamp. It just spoke summer to me - don't you think Adirondack chairs are totally a symbol of summer? This is one of the stamps I picked up when I won that raffle at the stamp show in the spring!
To add a little more dimension and texture to the focal image, I used Flower Soft as part of the grass and as a few of the posies in the flower pot to make those areas pop a bit more. All in all I'm pleased with this card overall - wish you could see it in person as the colors are a little more intense but still are soft.
Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog today!
