Summer Card for Two Challenges

Today's card is the product of two challenges: one for the layout and one for the colors.

The layout is from the Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge.  The overlapping design is not my usual style, so it was fun to step out of my comfort zone and see what I could do.

The colors for this card came from the Color Throwdown Color Challenge this week.  I love the summer feel of these colors and knew as soon as I saw it that I had to use it for something.  Since I did not have any DSP with these specific colors, I used the recolor tool to make my own.

I will be leaving in a week to attend the Stampin' Up! Convention in Salt Lake City.  I am so excited, but my husband will be left here with our wonderful (if sometimes crazy) children.  This card will be perfect to leave behind in an unexpected place for him to find while I am gone.

I used the base of the layout, as well as the main image, on the inside of the card.  I love the way MDS lets you group multiple images into one and then resize them all together.  Makes things like this so much easier.  Have a great summer and come back next week to see all the great things from Convention this year!
