Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #76


I really had to think about this challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments because it would mean I would have to get out of my pink mode that I always seem to be in. I got this wonderful package from my secret sister at SCS and decided I had to do something with all my goodies. I had purchased an old beat up book of poems at an antique store knowing that I would use the pages in my card making some day. As I was flipping through the book, I found the poem sun shadows and decided I had to use this in my card. The stamped leaves were from Take Three: Spring from Papertrey Ink. I added a few embellishments and decided I really like the colors yellow and green. I am glad I ventured out of my norm. So this is how I spend my summers - reading a good book in the sunshine.
