Cute Card Thursday Challenge - School's Out for Summer Challenge 120

Hello everyone - Today my local scrapbooking store, (see side bar), brought in a whole bunch of new paper and I absolutely love love paper and there was lots of new Bo Bunny paper - I couldn't resist most of the patterns and ended up buying a whole stack of new paper - tonight I couldn't wait to play - so I decided to join in the Cute Card Thursday Challenge because I got lots of summertime paper! I stamped Tilda with Mememto Tuxedo Black ink and colored her in with my copic markers, colors used were B000, B00, B01, B02, B05, E00, E01, E02, E31, E33, E34, E37, YR00, YR20, YR21, TY23, YR24 and R20. I used all new Bo Bunny paper - I used 4 different sheets for this card and the sentiment is also cut out from the Bo Bunny paper. I stamped the Magnolia sun and added that to the card, as well as adding the big turquoise brad in the corner, some colored twine on both sides, an actual seashell, some tiny jewels and at the end I cut out the little bee (also from Bo Bunny paper) and popped him up on the top of the bench. I think it looks better in real life - because there is so much white in the background the photo didn't turn out as well as I had hoped. I think I need to brush up on my photo taking skills. I wish I was Tilda today - I would have loved to be at the beach - we hit 39 degrees celsius today - a really hot summer day - but I love the heat!! I hope you have a great weekend!! Hope you get time to stamp - I am hoping to spend some more time in my craft room too!

Your stamping friend
