I am going to start the countdown with a colourful card using ONE of the stamps in the collection "happy happy birthday". I began by repeat stamping over the background (how did I line it up you ask, a faint pencil line and a stamp a ma jig--and lots of patience too!) You'll note I decided to highlight one of the sentiments by stamping it on a white rectangle. Since summer just screams colour I added a burst of colour on the card: raspberry fizz, simply chartreuse, hawaiian shores, sweet blush and lavender moon with a contrast of white and true black.
