Bluebonnet Birthday

I made this for my granddaughter, who lives overseas; wanted to send a greeting from Texas.
So thought these Bluebonnets were perfect since they are the state flower.
This is a new stamp Melanie Muenchinger from STTV, Fabulous Frames, I made templates
for the design, as her videos suggest; such a versital frame image for so many occasions.
I also used her State Flower #1 stamp for the images. They were colored with Intense Ink pencils.
then I used distress inks to blend the background. then colored the surrounding frame,
a one layer card that looks several layers. Neat, good for postage, an time.
Card stock is PTI white, and the ink an colors did not fad through.
think I will enjoy this image, now that I have made the templates for design and challenge.
Hope you enjoy, I love how it turned out.

This tag is full of summer fun and summer colors. Tags are fun as is summer.
I used leftovers but was pleased how it came out. Hope you enjoy it.  and thanks so much
for looking.  Notice the hot dogs on the balloon. summer goodies.
