Summer Color Challenge

I had so much fun making this card!!! It was one of those cards that fell into place just how I wanted it to! On my friend Laurie's blog, she showed these cute flower pots that she made. She had a link to a tutorial for making the flowers. I knew I'd want to make the flowers someday. Well, when I saw the CAS challenge for this week (that was posted last night) and then saw the new contest digiment, I knew that it would be perfect to combine the two, and finally make those flowers!!! I don't have heart nesties or a heart punch, so I cut the hearts out on my cricut. Before distressing the petals, I stamped on them using the Background Basics: Text Style stamp. I added some score lines above and below the digiment. I am so happy with how this card turned out. I can't believe how much I love the look of Kraft.

Go grab your free Digiment to play along, and link back to the Digiments Blog. This week is your last chance to win all of the new Digiments. The release will be this Saturday, bright and early. And remember how affordable these are.....all 30 digiments for $20. Well, Michelle has something up her sleeve to sweeten the deal even more. More info on that later! Enjoy your Monday. I'm off to clean up my stamping space. It's so chaotic right now. If someone walked in my house and said they'd pay me $1000 to make them a card but I only had a half an hour to do it, I don't know if I could. It might take me that long just to find everything. The place is a mess!!!!

Stamps: PTI Background Basics: Text Style, Verve Petals and Stems
Digiment: Contest 4
Ink: PTI Dark Chocolate, PTI Raspberry Fizz
Cardstock: SU Kraft, SU Rose Red
Accessories: PTI Hibiscus Burst Button
