It is no secret that summertime is my favorite thing of all time, so this challenge was so fun for me. I decided to pull out some summery colors of pink and sky blue, and made a cute little animal scene with a stamp layered flamingo and some butterfly die cuts.

For the base of my card, I went with a technique that I used to do all the time in my scrapbooking days: layering! Creating layers with patterned paper is such a quick and fun way to create a unique background and bonus - you can use up whatever scraps you have laying around! A couple of the papers I chose are from the January My Monthly Hero kit.

I just love this fun stamp layering flamingo! It comes together so easily, and I love how it looks like you spent so long making it.

To finish off my card, I used a few butterfly die cuts that are from the negative of my butterfly background die, and also scattered some pink pearls around. I then die cut a "hello" sentiment from the March My Monthly Hero kit and gold heat embossed the die cut.
