a no stampin' card

Did I already say how much I love the summer picnic paper?...well I do...I LOVE IT!! I see alot of it in my future! The colors are fantabulous! When I buy a pack of designer paper, I always end up with one or two sheets that I don't really use....not this paper...I have thought of ways to use it all!! This was a fairly simple card. I didn't do any stamping. I used the layout from the sketch challenge at Splitcoast. I used as many pieces of my yummy paper as I possibly could! I also used my new die cut blooms that will be available in the upcoming Occasions Mini. They are great...easy to punch out without the little pieces to trim and they are textured cardstock. I punched a flower from the dsp to put in the build-a-brad. I distress edges and last added a ribbon..then I decided to try adding a rub-on on the went on alot better than I thought it would. After I was finished with the card I liked it so much I made another one...I just made a few small changes...I used my red striped ribbon and added a rub-on sentiment on the paper.
Have a great Sunday...Shawn left today for a 2 week business trip so the kids and I are enjoying some relax time after all the "busy" we have's a gorgeous day here in Katy today!! We are even able to open the windows and enjoy a nice breeze!! :)
