Here comes Summer! - OSAAT Challenge #111

Starting today, I'll be participating weekly instead of biweekly with my wonderful teamies at the One Stitch at a Time challenge blog. Looking forward to working with more fun StitchyBear Store images!

This week our challenge theme is Here comes Summer! I used Boy with Flowers by Sylvie Stamps:

This card uses no designer paper; I created all the BPs myself, using the Let It Shine set from Verve Stamps. I heat-embossed the sun/flower images in Translucent Yellow (Stampendous), and colored the flowers with Sharpies.I based my color palette on that pretty printed ribbon. I distressed the pieces with Mustard Seed distress ink (Ranger).

Hope you'll join us at One Stitch at a Time for our Here comes Summer! challenge.
