Face To The Sun

I found a little break this afternoon and made a quick little summer scene card which I think is not only representative of summer but also is a card of encouragement too. I am entering this in the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog Challenge for this week. The theme is Summer Fun and that is also the theme for the Mix It Up Monday challenge at Stamp TV too. So I will enter it there as well.


I sponged on inks to make the background and then stamped the girl on the bicycle in black ink. She is an image from the Face To The Sun duo set by Gina K. Designs.  I layered the card panel onto black card stock before I applied it to the A2 size base card.

But before I added it to the base I took the Cheery Lynn Designs B117S Mini Fanciful Flourish Left and divided it up so that all along the left edge it resembled a vine crawling up the side. I also added a flourish to the inside to tie it to the outside design.

The grandsons are here and are helping Grandpa combine wheat. I think overall they are enjoying it. The little one ended up taking a nap the first day. So far today, I don't know if that happened again or not,  but hubby said that first day they had not even made a round in the field and he was out like a light. Oh, well, an afternoon nap is good too!

I hope your week is going well. Mine is a busy but enjoyable one. Good to take time for the grandchildren too.

God bless,
Verna

what a fun card! I used to love riding my bike, and always found such peace and enjoyment during my excursions. Your pastels are especially pretty in contrast to the black vine and your silhouette image, Verna! xo
