TCPTues269-Hello Summer

Hello friends. Thanks for joining me today for the next TCP Tuesday Challenge. It's an inspiration challenge, check it out and see where it leads you. 

Here is my card. I love using a classic red, blue, and cream color combo. I did some sifting through my crafty goodies and found some canvas and the yummy Dotty Biscotti designer papers. 

I used two new products that were JUST released, Vintage Summer and the Butterflies Cutups. Isn't the sentiment stamped directly on the canvas so pretty?!!

I stitched on some buttons with with red twine. I also added texture by running the navy, large butterfly through my crimper. I love giving card stock corrugated look.  This new buttefly die is awesome. You can never have to many butterflies. 

I hope that you play along in our TCP Tuesday Challenge. We’d love to see what do.
Here are the Deets.
