HSS Summer Fun Theme Challenge #76

Summer is definitely upon us! It is a toasty 90+ degrees here in California. Luckily we haven't had to turn the air on too much this summer. Lots of time in the pool, that's for sure. 
I was asked to create a kids birthday card for this weeks challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments. I started with a Pumpkin Pie base and layered a piece of Rose Red paper from the Patterned Designer Series Paper Stack. The images were stamped in Basic Black ink onto Whisper White card stock and colored in with Stampin' Write Markers. This was layered onto a piece of Old Olive card stock. I added a strip of Old Olive along the bottom as well and tied a piece of the dotted ribbon from the retired Elementary Ribbon pack around the front. I really love this ribbon and was so sad when it was retired, (NOTE: I just saw that it is in the Clearance Rack at SU, so if you LOVE it, hurry and grab it here.) Finally the sentiment was added to a piece of Tempting Turquoise and punched out with the My Way punch, also retired:( 

We'd love for you to stop by and join us this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

This is such a cute birthday card with the two kids on it! I don't use this set enough! I've even made small "stamp-a-m-jig" guides, so I have no excuse.
