Lazy Hazy Days of Summer

I'm just sharing a really simple card today that I made last night for my teenage collection.
But I think it could really be for anyone.

I wanted to make something calming and relaxing to look at...
It is how I like my summer to be.

I don't think the colours are really showing well...but it is some distress inks blended
onto shiny cardstock and simply stamped on.
The seagulls have been bleached so that they stand out more.
It is almost a one layer card...the chit chat stickers are the only extra on this card.

And the stamps are from Katzelcraft and Chocolate Baroque.


I would like to enter this into the following challenges ~

Hi Dot, this is a gorgeous card - you've really captured the clear blue of a summer sky and the birds give that sense of freedom too.

You have captured calm and peaceful perfectly Dot and the bleaching really makes the gulls pop.
