Divine Diva Inspriation Challenge 31

It's July already...can you even believe that?  I can't.  Well, at least we have a long weekend coming up!

This week's Divine Diva Inspiration challenge (from HWTM Daily Blog) is all about summer, and I love the colors and the theme.  Only problem was that I didn't really have any nautical-themed stamps when I made my card.

So I went with those wonderful red flowers on the tall vase.  The stamp I used is a clear dollar stamp, and I'm not sure at all where it came from.  I stamped the flowers with red ink and colored very quickly with a Copic marker.  Then, I stamped a bunch of flower with blue ink, cut out the centers and layered them over the red flowers.  The final touch was a dot of glue and some blue glitter. I considered just leaving the card with just the flower panel, but in the end I couldn't resist adding some red ribbon and a Martha Stewart sticker.

I'm sure the other Diva's have some awesome cards to show you, so please take a minute and check out their blogs (links are in my side bar to the right).  Chris couldn't join us this week, but we have a fabulous guest designer to fill in for her:  Dana at Dana's Dabbling Studio.

Happy July, everyone!
