Playing in Paradise #79

Is it me or is summer zooming on by way to fast, I noticed that it was not quite as light when my alarm went off this morning (pouty face)...

Ahh well.. the seasons must go on :) and with that said on with the crafting season which much to my delight goes all year long. The challenge for Playing in Paradise this week is brought to us by Merle and we get to play with colour.

Usually I don't fair so well when it comes to colour challenges but I lucked out with this DP and it did all the work for me. So this card is on the simple side.

The clouds are actually cut out from the flip side of this paper, I lightly edged them with Versacolor Pinecone . The sentiment was heat embossed in brown, I finished with some twine and a button.

Supplies: Cream and brown cardstock, Designer Paper-Echo Park, Inspired by Stamping - The Sky's the Limit, misc twin and button.

Thank you for stopping by, please visit the Playing in Paradise blog to see what the challenge team had created. Join in the challenge fun and you could win a prize

    Sweet card, and I too hate to see the summer go. We usually get a real nice fall, so that helps.
