Happy 4th of July!!! Is everyone enjoying the summer??? Here in Michigan it has been super dry, we really could use the rain! We have also seen several 90 degree days, with several in a row, and with no air conditioning, those days are not fun!!! We are have a few coming later this week and I am not looking forward to it!!!!

But anyway my card today is very summery and I made if for Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge - Stencil It! I used two SSS products: Dots & Lines Stencil and Happy Days Stamp.

I started by die cutting a stitched rectangle from water color card stock. I stamped the sun and flower on it. On a scrap piece I stamped the cute kit and speech bubble. With my distress markers I color up the images (colors used are listed with supplies at the bottom).

For a sentiment I stamped the small Thanks in the speech bubble. I added it and the kite to the rectangle with foam dots after fussy cutting them. I added a little blue to the background of the rectangle and carefully added a few blue flicks. Some how I manged to miss the images!!

For a background I diced to use the Dots & Lines stencil with Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink. I added the stamped rectangle to the card base and last added a few sequins to the rectangle.
