It's another Seize the Birthday Thursday and we are celebrating the return of summer, at least for those of us located in the northern hemisphere. Our Topping for this fortnight is Summer Activities.
If I'm being honest, my favorite summer activity is to remain indoors with the AC on. (I know my fellow Floridians can relate.) But I do occasionally venture out into my pool and thought Blanche was totally appropriate for my way of thinking. And no Art Impression character is complete without a tiny bit of snark. *wink*
All she's missing is a pool side adult beverage.
I began by stamping, coloring and die cutting out my fabulous Blanche. I did a bit of stenciling onto a white card panel, stamped the sentiment and then adhered Blanche over top. I used a Versamark ink pad and a horizontal striped stamp to create a bit of interest to the navy card base before adhering my panel. All that was needed was a few clay hearts to finish it off.
I invite you to visit our blog and look forward to seeing your card in our gallery! If toppings aren't your thing, any birthday card qualifies.
