Celebrating Summer

We are officially on summer vacation here! (whew) It's so nice to be able to slow down a bit and relax. We also just finished up the deadline for the summer catalog at Stampendous so now I have time to play!  Today's card is one that I created for a few challenges and to celebrate Summer Vacation! 

I used this week's sketch over at Splitcoaststampers for the layout. I really wanted a cow print pattern for the background and didn't have any so I created my own by hand cutting it.

Supplies Used
stamps: Cling Cowlick Cake (Stampendous)
paper: Bazzill
coloring medium: Copics
ink: Memento (Tsukineko)
other: burlap, twine, vellum and buttons

Created for the following challenges:
the Crop Stop- for kids
Love to Create- anything goes
Lets Ink it Up- favorite embellishment (loving burlap these days)

Really exciting news: Stampendous is teaming up with ClearScraps for a blog hop week. Visit the ClearScrap and Stampendous Blogs everyday this week to see a list of participants and enter for a chance to win a huge prize pack!
