hello sunshine

I lied.  Summer is not here in Seattle.  Unless it was only two days long.  Today it is pouring rain.  I'm not talking the  90 degree summer downpours in the south, or the 85 degree cloud bursts in Hawaii.  I'm talking the 61 degree miserable rains in Seattle that make you long for a fire and some hot chocolate.

Thus, my bright and cheerful card for the Papertrey Ink blog hop challenge.  I drew inspiration from the lively colors and the patchwork quilt.
stamp: Papertrey Ink "hello sunshine"
ink: VersaFine onyx black

So pretty Kari. You captured the colors so well with those paper strips. :o) Hope you will have some sunshine soon.

Beautiful yet simple card (which are the hardest!). Looks great Kari! :)

I've been looking at a lot of the blog posts people have made for their cards and this is the first one I'm commenting on. Absolutely stunning! So clean and simple but packs a big punch with the colors and the sentiment!

Super card! Like the clean look of it. I might even be able to keep this clean! (I've issues with white) My brother lives in Gig Harbor and has been telling us how summer seems to have forgotten that part of the US. Hope August is a better month for you.

I feel your pain--summer is avoiding the Bay Area as well.

Very cute and summery card! Love the colors and strips of paper.
