CDS SOM - Blown Over

Blown Over is August's Stamp of the Month at Clear Dollar Stamps - yours free with a purchase of $50 or more. I've been on a Clean and Simple kick lately and I'm so glad I chose to keep it simple with this card. I think it highlights the stamp set to perfection. This is definitely a new go-to layout for me. Thank you Shannan!!! I've stamped the image directly onto watercolor paper as I wanted to be able to use my Tombows without having to worry. The sentiment panel along with the scalloped panel have been popped up using Stamping Dimensionals and then large flowery shaped brads have been added as well.

My second card was inspired by my DP. It's summery, fun, bright - everything that I love about summer. I've been trying to make clouds lately to create a background. It's still a work in progress. If you can believe it - I bought a cloud template and had it in my purse for days without ever taking it out. As soon as I took it out of my purse I lost it. Oops!!!! Hope you like my card.
