Hello Summer card with Crayola coloring sheet freebie

Here's another Happy Summer/Happy 4th of July combo card. As I explained with my last Happy Summer Beach Crab post, I like using a summer sentiment and image on the outside, whilst saving my Happy 4th sentiment for the inside.

I used a luscious Happy Summer Crayola freebie as the focal point. Jute ribbon and coordinating buttons carry on the color theme.

Paper is from a Max Bringmann patterned paper pad (the same as on the aforementioned Beach Crab card). Sorry for no links. These are lovely papers, but just about impossible to find online; I have only ever found them in Aldi Swizterland.

Supply List
Paper – cardstock, patterned paper
Digital stamp –  Crayola coloring freebie
Color – Caran d'Ache Luminance 6901 pencils
Dies – Die-namics rectangle stax
Embellishments – jupe ribbon, buttons
