Summer Fairy - Simply Betty Stamps Fan Page Challenge

Wow!  It seems that I haven't posted anything in awhile.  Perfect Sentiments is on vacation the month of July and I really have been very busy with the house to take time to get something done.  I'm getting this one in just under the wire. It's due tomorrow.

The image is from Simply Betty Stamps.  It's a freebie that she gives to us with the understanding that we will use it for an entry into the Fan Page Challenge.  If you don't use it for the challenge, then you have to sit out the next month.  For this challenge, the idea was to make our own background for the image.  I used Stampin Up Groovy Guava, Kiwi Kiss, and Pool Party inks and sponges to create my background.  Just sponged around the image without any kind of pattern.

Here's my card.
Materials Used:
  • Image - Simply Betty Stamps - Summer Fairy
  • Sentiment -Lili of the Valley - Everyday Grungy Greetings
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up Pool Party and Wild Wasabi; Xpress It Blending Card
  • Designer Paper - Fancy Pants Designs - Summer's End
  • Ink - Stampin Up - Groovy Guava, Kiwi Kiss, and Pool Party
  • Accessories - Sponges; Nestabilities Labels Seventeen; Ribbon - Ribbon Boutique; Prima Flowers - Blue; Wild Orchid Crafts - Peach flowers; Martha Stewart Fir Branch punch; Bling from my stash; Stickles - Clear
  • Copic markers:  BG000, BG02, BG11; E00, E01, E11; R46; YG03, YG61, YG63; YR00, YR02, YR12
That's it for today.  Gotta go get this uploaded to the challenge blog and check out some other challenges out there.  Thanks for stopping by.
