Summer Days

Yeah! It's Saturday!  We are having family over to celebrate the 8th grade graduation of our DD Kaeli!  So we will be cleaning up the house and preparing some yummy summer food for later. But this morning early... I was able to play around and create a card for a few challenges.  The ColorQ Challenge #87 and Wee Memories - Anything Goes inspired me to pull out some bright and cheery papers from my stash and put together this card:


The images are from Artistic Outpost (SongbirdsBluebird).  The papers are from Crate Paper.
Simple grid with some distressing with the acrylic paints, vintage photo and the distressing tool. The main image is stamped with vintage photo and highlighted with a little yellow tones. The buttons are even distressed with a little brown ink. :)

Here is the color swatch:


Hope your day is beautiful!
