Evening...... well, the decorating didn't really get too far, so I took the opportunity this evening to sit down and make a card using the Summer Splash clear mount stamp set from the Mini Catalogue.
This set almost passed me by, but when I placed my first order I spent enough to qualify for some free products and this is the stamp set I went for.
I have to admit that I did get inspiration from this from the web - I think CASEd is the term? So thanks to Mary Brown.
Seeing as the sun has been shining again today, I went for some nice bright colours.
I don't actually have a scallop border punch, so I used my imagination and worked with the pretty small sided 1 1/2" scallop square punch. I thought the Tempting Turquoise looked kind of like the sea lapping against the sand, with the Tangerine Tango being the wet sand and the Daffodil Delight the dry sand. What do you think?
I don't have many stamp sets with sentiments in, so this happy birthday was stamped from the now retired Punch Bunch Sale-a-bration stamp set.
