Copic Sunset

I'm excited to be guesting for My Sheri Crafts this week.

I was asked to create a card with the theme of "Summer Solstice".  I struggled with this because I wasn't quite sure what it meant.  After much research, I found it was basically the longest day of the year... (where the sun is out the longest).

So I got to coloring "Hula Girl" by Make It Crafty.  Have you seen their images?  They are out of control!!  I have a few and am intimidated to color them.  I'd have to really get more practice in.  It was my first time trying this "sunset" type scene.  It wasn't difficult, maybe one day I'll get the nerve to do a video tutorial.

In any case, for this card I used BoBunny "Country Garden" and also Simple Stories "Vintage Bliss".  The layout is basic, but I did want to make it dimentional and eye catching, so I added tons of flowers and even squeezed in a couple of different butterflies.  The sentiment are chipboard stickers by KI Memories.

Take care.
