A Summer Tweet

The Clean and Simple challenge on Split Coast this week was to use the summer colors of turquoise, orange and blue. And as luck would have it - the DoubleDog Dare Challenge a few weeks ago made by Joanne (Sleepyinseattle) (which I hadn't gotten to yet!) - was to use orange, yellow and blue - so I'm hitting two birds with one card so to speak!!

The bird is cut from the small and medium Shapeability Nested Birds and mounted with foam dimensionals on the card. I scored three lines above and below for a little depth on the card. Pretty clean and simple! The sentiment is from the Amuse stamp set called Nature.



We'd love to have you join along with the weekly Doubledog Dare challenges - just load your challenge card in your SCS gallery and use the keyword DDC - you can see all the DDC cards here.
