Summer Fun Birthday - Stampin' Up! Silly Goose

   I pulled out a carry over stamp set from the spring mini catalog to use for my card today.  In my neck of the woods school has already started so the summer fun is over but the weather is still very much "summer" so I thought I would play along with the As You See It Challenge and give this carry over set  some love.   The Just Add Ink Challenge had a great layout that was perfect for this image.

    The Silly Goose stamp set is cute and super easy to color and since the theme is summer I went with the sweet little goose enjoying some time on the water with a friend.
  I started with a Blueberry Bushel base, then a piece of Bright & Beautiful DSP backed with a piece of Lemon Lolly.  The wavy pattern went perfectly with the water on the stamp and gave me a lot of colors to incorporate with my Blends markers.  I cut a second circle from a different pattern in the Bright & Beautiful pack and used it as the sky and added a few clouds die cut with the Zany Zoo die set.

  The sentiment is from a retired set called Itty Bitty Birthdays and was the right scale to fit with the sketch.  I stamped it in Berry Burst and cut it apart and popped it on dimensionals.  The "birthday" has a bit of Lemon Lolly sheer ribbon behind it for some detail.
  A few sparkle gems finish off the details for this summer birthday card.
  All of the current products used to make this card can be purchased through my ONLINE STORE.  

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
