Fun in the Sun - CTMH Stampers With an Attitude Style!

Welcome to the Stampers with an Attitude Fun in the Sun Blog Hop.  This month I am following, Becky McLain.  Wasn't her artwork incredible?

Our theme this month was Fun in the Sun.  I found this super cute card pattern at Card Crafters Circle.  I am entering my card into their challenge this week.  Woo Hoo!  I was chosen one of the Top 3 at Card Crafters Circle!

Here is my card:

 I wanted my card to be warm and fun.  I used the Buzz and Bumble paper pack (X7164B) and the Close to My Heart Stamp Set, Bright Sunshiny Day (D1538).  I stamped the image with our Cocoa Pigment Ink and embossed it with our Clear Embossing powder it a little POP.  Then I colored parts of the images in with our Honey and Juniper Markers.

The cute buttons come from our Wooden Mini-Medley Accents (Z1837).  And I added a little bling to two of them.  I balanced out my artwork with the Mini Wooden Clothespin (Z1815) and added a cute hemp bow and another brown bling with some of our Liquid Glass (Z679).  It will hold anything!

Now, hop on over to our next Blog hopper, the super-artistic, Barbi Kelley and see what she has made for you to see!

I am also entering this card in this week's Paper Player's Color Challenge #149.  I have used Close to My Heart Colors for this challenge.  I used Sunset, Juniper, Honey, and Cocoa.
