The sun was out earlier this week and we took every moment possible to get outside and enjoy it. I'm glad we did because the rain has now returned. However, when I decided to create a card for this week's Fusion Challenge, I thought I'd make my own bit of sunshine. :) When I saw the Fusion sketch I knew immediately that I wanted to use one of Crate Paper's slide frames and create a little scene.
I used Crate Paper's The Pier collection...I just love that floral paper and the cute clothesline (which I trimmed down to work for my card). The 'hello summer' sentiment was actually one piece but I cut it into two little banners and inked up the edges and curled them up a bit to create a little separation from the background.
For the yellow polka dot (My Mind's Eye) and pink watercolor (American Crafts) paper, I actually got out my distresser and sanded all around the edges as well as scuffing up the paper a bit to soften and coordinate a bit better with The Pier collection.
I'm hoping for more sunny days soon! :)
