"Summer Celebration" Blog Hop! (And Fusion#13)

It's time for another We Create Blog Hop! July's theme is Summer Celebration - and what better way to celebrate summer than with bright colors and sunny salutations?

I created this first card for the Fusion #13 sketch challenge. The "window panels" layout was inspired by this card over on Jill's, Ink.

Close-up of the "window-pane," made with the Postage Stamp punch.
The Daffodil Delight string was dyed by pulling white Baker's Twine
through the Daffodil Delight stamp pad with a sponge on top.

Then I made this second card to coordinate with the first - same color scheme, same stamp sets, but very different cards.

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to check out all the other great bloggers in the hop this month to see their Summer Celebration inspiration! As always, follows, Pins, and comments are welcome  :)
