Totally Stampalcious Monday PLUS

The challenge for Totally Stampalicious' Monday Challenge was to have a frozen treat on our card.  Well, I was totally motivated by this kite die I have been wanting to use......after all.....kites and popsicles certaiinly mean summer to me (at least in my younger years...lol!!)!!!  I used the newly released Poppi Penguin set from Totally Stampalicious' Bugaboo line.  The kite die is from My Favorite Things.

We certainly hope you'll do two things.....

1.  Stop by the TS Blog to see the 'frozen treats' created by the rest of the Design Team.
2.  Play along with us in the challenge.

This card was made for fun and will be added to a stash I am making for a friend's daughter.  She is very active in her church and the woman's ministry and, in that capacity, writes notes to people often.  I am trying to make some 'easy to mail' cards for her to use.  This card was created with Mark's Finest Papers set, Lilacs in Summer.  I scored the lines on the background piece, rounded corners, paper pierced, and added a few gem flowers.

Did this one wake you up????  I had fun with the coloring of this fab bloom by Innovative Stamp Creations.  It is a big, bold image and, IMHO, demanded some bold colors!!  The background was also stamped with an Innovative Stamp Creations stamp.  And, due to its size and boldness, I only added a lattice border and a ribbon....didn't seem to need anything else.

Hope you have a great day......I am off to a picnic this afternoon.  An annual event....and a time to catch up with friends from near and far.
