So I decided to create my own summer feeling with today's card (another clean & simple design). The challenge today for "Ways to Use it" is "Something old, something new". I used a stamp set that I've had for a couple of years and had to blow the dust off before I could start :) The new thing is the Nestabilities Label Two that I purchased a couple of months ago. I didn't use it to cut out a frame or backdrop, I used it as a stencil and outlined the shape with my Stampin' Write marker. It's always good to find another way to use tools!! Hope you like.

I stamped the image with Soft Suede ink onto Whisper White cardstock. I colored in the flowers, pot and lady bug using the Stampin' Write markers. I used the Nestabilities Label Two as a stencil and outlined the shape with the thick end of the Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Write markers. I stamped the sentiment also in Pumpkin Pie ink.
I tied a knot of ribbon about 1/3 from the bottom and then mounted the panel onto the card base of Daffodil Delight. Easy, quick and fun to make!!
