i{heart}2stamp Sketch with a Kite

I almost missed this month's sketch from i{heart}2stamp and I knew exactly what I was going to do from the day that I saw it at the beginning of July!

The sponsor for this month's challenge is My Favorite Things.  When I saw the sketch, I had just purchased these fun kite and cloud dies so I knew I was going to make a summer scene.  I had originally intended to include one of their sweet Pure Innocence children, but the paper and colors of the card just took over and I didn't end up doing any stamping at all!  I deliberately left off a sentiment because I think it is a perfect fit for many different occasions.

(This is my second post today)

  • Paper: Stampin' Up Island Indigo, Poppy Parade, and Confetti Cream; Papertrey Ocean Tides, Harvest Gold, and New Leaf; WeR Memory Keepers Comstock Sky (background paper), Cosmo Cricket Togetherness Mini Deck (kite)
  • Ink: Stampin' Up Creamy Caramel (on edges), Papertrey Ocean Tides (on clouds)
  • Accessories: My Favorite Things Kite and Cloud dies, Quickutz Sun Die, Papertrey buttons in Fine Linen, Lemon Zest and Pure Poppy, Papertrey Ocean Tides ribbon, Stampin' Up Scallop Border Punch
