Enjoy the Ride

This summer is shaping up to be crazy hot and crazy busy. But, I did steal an hour last night to create something to share. With the exception of the card base, everything was raided from my scraps bin. I could say I do this as a way to recycle and help the environment, but really, who am I kidding? This is nothing more than a feeble attempt to justify buying more PTI paper!!

For this card, I inked up Everyday Button Bits. The base and black scallop circles are SU cardstock. The striped patterned paper is from BasicGrey's Ambrosia collection. For the image, I used London Fog dye ink from Memento and Midnight Black chalk ink (Tsukineko). The buttons were also from my stash of embellies and jazzed up with some red DMC floss.

Sorry about the poor picture quality. The clouds have rolled in this afternoon & rain is not far behind. However, this still hasn't given us a break from the heat and humidity. But, I'm not complaining 'cause this is 10x better than snow!!

Happy Stamping!!

Tools Used:
- Slice & Basics 1 design card (MM)
- paper piercer (MM) & template (SU)
- Corner Chomper (WRM)

Hee--you gave me the giggles, Suzanne--anything to justify more PTI paper! :-D Love the PP here. I think it works well with the stamp and overall design! P.S. You paper pierce really well!
