July Blog Hop

I just joined a CTMH blog hop group. If you are already on the hop, you came from Michelle's site. For July we had a choice of creating a project with a party/picnic theme or a project using the July stamp of the month. I chose the latter. In case you couldn't tell by recent posts, I LOVE this month's stamp set.

So far, I've been stuck in the mindset of Fourth of July for this set. My first card was no exception. I random stamped the background in Crystal Blue, Indian Corn Blue, and Cranberry. I embossed the star in Cranberry and added the banner. To finish it off, I decided to add some sparkle with Prisma Glitter.

When I finished, I wondered what the card would look like in a different color scheme. I chose Gypsy, Watermelon, and a hint of Pear. I love the fun summer look.

Next stop on the Hop is Sherri's blog.
