Summer Card Camp Week 3

Hi Everybody!

How are you all doing? I just came back from my mom's - went to visit her! She lives 200 km away and I go see her twice a month. Anyway I wanted to reported that we had a bit of cooling - we are now at  "just" 28 deg C during the day and the nights are around 20 degC or less which is nice so I am finally having some sleep! And because I did have some sleep I managed to catch up with Summer Card Camp week 3! Their color combo for

and here is my take on.....


The background was stamped with the Hero Arts Large Fabric Design stamp with Versamark for a tone on tone effect, the stamp on cream paper is from Crafty Individuals CI - 137, the text is from an old book which I made even older with putting some Distress stain on the edges, the flowers are made of TH Kraft Glassine but I must admit I was a bit disappointed as it didn't turn out to be what I thought it would be - it seems so flimsy!!! Maybe I am doing something wrong does anybody have some suggestion???? Two butterflies and some string and TH Dream ticket! I colored a bit of the stamp with a red Copic marker, also put spots of red with a coloring pencil around the text just to pull it all together! I was going to make another card with the other combos of this week but I am just so tired from all that driving I think I better go to sleep and come back tomorrow with a few other things I have been working on!
Have a lovely evening and a good start to the new week....may you who have it hot get some cool days and you who have it cold get a warm week!
Hugs to all of you,
Cardarian
