To you. From me.



Summer Card Camp 2 is so much fun.  I feel like I am getting back into the groove and feeling very inspired by all these challenges.  So my card today uses this week's color combo + 1 neutral....(not a sketch...hope that is ok).

I found an adorable cut file from A Little Hut, and had to put it to use.  Before I layered up this card, I took some distress inks and added them to a piece of white cardstock.  I considered stamping on the card stock, but felt that the lines from the cut were the right amount going on for the card front.  I added in a little banner and sentiment to finish it off.  I don't use these distress inks very often because mostly? I'm scared.  There it is.  The ugly truth.  It's kinda of like spray mist.  I have no control.  I don't like that.  I need controlled mess.  hehe!  Like "controlled splatter" in the form of a splatter stamp.  Already done for me!  Love that!  

OK.  I appreciate you stopping in!  Hope you have a great Thursday!
