Fence Friends - SSS62

Good Morning Everyone. What a gorgeous day we're having today.  Last night was the first time in about two weeks that it cooled off enough at night to sleep with the windows open.  It's going to be another HOT one today again, but that's OK. That's what's summer is all about.  And that's just what my card today reminds me of.

The inspiration for my card today came from the Sweet Stop Sketch Blog. This is such a great sketch again this week, so hop on over and play along with us. There you can be inspired with the sketch along with the amazing artwork of the other DT members.

For my card, I used a new Digi Stamp that was just released last week at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, called Fence Friends. I printed the image on my printer and colored it with Copic Markers.  I also used the Digi Stamp called Everyday Miracles for the Butterfly. This set is also available in Clear Stamps.

The Designer Paper is retired paper from Close to my Heart, but I happen to really like it for the great soft colors of Blush, Amethyst,  Heavenly Blue and Sweet Leaf.

The Hand Stitching was done with matching Amethyst Embroidery Floss.

Other Challenge Blogs I had in mind when creating this card:
CCEE Stampers - Summertime - Flowers
Delightful Challenges - All About Summer
Digi Doodle - Anything Goes
I Love Digi's - Emboss It.
Caardvark - Wet or Dry Embossing
