Summer has hit our house.  It is taking me a bit to get used to the change in schedule and whatnot.  I am sure that it will pass much too quickly in most ways as it does every year, and yet getting through the heat is never fun.

I started by stenciling the background on to the cardstock with the iced spruce and then misting it very lightly, I then moved it just a bit and added the vintage photo color and dabbed it with a wet paper towel.  I then set it aside to dry and cut and stamped the sentiment blocks.  I then affixed everything to the front of the card.
