Summer Dreams...

Good morning and happy Wednesday! Hope your week is going good so far!

I made today's card using one of Whimsy Stamps May Release Rubberstamp set by Crissy's Designs. The set is called "Summer Garden Carousel". It's such a beautiful set, and includes the carousel horse plus 4 sentiments.


As you can see I cut the horse out after stamping it, and  it is now no longer a carousel horse. It just worked better this way with the card design I had in mind.

It was a simple card to make, I simply cut out a nestablities shape from the designer paper. The sentiment which is part of this set was stamped onto white card stock, and I layered the designer paper onto the white card stock. Added a little bit of ribbon, then adhered the horse with dimensionals. To finish it off I sewed around the edges and added some glitter.

I would love to enter my card to the following challenges:
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoy the rest of your week!
