Spring DIs - birthday card

Don't know where June has gone, almost the longest day and hardly any summer to talk about so I thought I would cheer myself up yesterday, put away the sewing for a day and make a summer themed card.
Being a complete scatterbrain I forgot a forum friend's birthday so this needed to be done pretty sharpish.

Glossy card smooshed with Spring Distress Inks and stamped with Crafty Individuals stamps.  The 'sea-foam' at the bottom is made by melting wonderweb on the card until it goes into holes before adding and melting white embossing powder.  I do like the effect it gives.

Speaking of Distress Inks I swore that I wouldn't fall for the 'limited issue, get yours now' publicity but afraid I weakened when I saw the summer ones and ordered them yesterday.  The colours looked so vibrant on the video so I hope they live up to their looks when they eventually arrive - will let you know what I think.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend - looks like a brighter dryer week ahead thank goodness, maybe summer is on the way at last.

Your card is lovely and like that wonderweb thingy idea. I don't think you will be disappointed with the new colours, I don't really like vibrant pink but I used it on my latest card and it is a stunning colour and the blue is just amazing.

Hi Ann
The background is wonderful and a great backdrop for the CI stamps.
