Happy Summer card

Hi, friends!
Yesterday, I made a card for the first time in a a few weeks for joining the Hero Art's 'photo' challenge this week (June 29th - July 5th).

I almost recovered, I think. But the summer has just begun... :(
I sincerely thank you for your kind inquiries e-mails about my health, friends! ;)

今回は写真を使ったスタンピング・プロジェクトと言うのが、エントリー条項ですので、爽やかな夏イメージの海岸の写真をセレクトし、 あれこれと。ですが、写真セレクトに1時間ほど、制作も1時間くらいで終わったかな?と言う感じでした。やはりニードルワークや編み物に比べ、ペーパークラフトは所要時間が短くて、達成感が得られますね。(複雑なカルトナージュなどは、かなり時間が必要ですが・・・。放り出したままの物があります(笑))

This is the card I made, 'Happy Summer card'
Made this card to select the pic of a beach. I made a similar image card in April, this year.
'Cause, I love this kinds of beach image most - the beautiful sea and sky, comfortable wind and pretty birds.

This is a closeup view around the three ferns.
I stamped Three Ferns stamp with 3 distress inks, and heat-embossing with antique linen, and then I put 2 stickles around the edges of the leaves.

stamp used:
HA Three Ferns / S5154
HA Sand Piper / D4924
HA Sparckle Clear Happy Greetings / CL180

Ink & embossing powder:
Tsukineko VersaFine / Onyx Black, StazOn / Jet Black
Ranger Distress Ink / Peeled Paint, Broken China, Dried Marigold, Antique Linen
