Great Impressions DT - Etsy Summer Inspired Card

I can't believe how fast May has gone. With the kiddos out of school we've had a few lazy mornings and I'm hoping for a few more!
Yay for sunshine and summer break!

And for Etsy...I found a darling pendant that inspired today's card. Love the two-toned background, the pop of color and the gleam of metal.

Lots of blending using Distress Ink: Tea Dye, Vintage Photo, Broken China, and Peacock and a generous spritz (or two or four) of Perfect Pearls in Pearl.

Love making my own backgrounds - makes the most of the stamps I already have (and even sometimes that old paper I can't seem to get rid of...more on that later)!

You can do the same using these Great Impressions Stamps:

Rose Trio (stamped in Vintage Photo Distress Ink)
Butterfly Flourish (stamped in Peacock Distress Ink)
Butterfly Frame (stamped and cut out the butterfly)
A Flower (the sentiment)

The black satin crinkled ribbon was hard to photograph. IRL the texture is just right!
The sentiment panel edge is embossed in silver and touches of Fran-tage Mica fragments. Love the vintage shimmer...sigh.

Today's the last day to link up your project for Great Impressions Stamps May challenge - Anything Goes! Scroll to the bottom of the post to link up! Good luck!

Inky hugs,
