#100 (and welcome summer!)

Wow, it's hard to believe that this is my post number 100! I haven't even been blogging for half a year... One day short of five months to be exact. I dedicate this post nr. 100 to SUMMER! Welcome! :)

I saw this sketch at Trykkpressa a long time ago and promptly forgot all about it. Then it reappeared in my mind yesterday, and today I had the idea of making it look like a window overlooking the sea. And now, having made the card, I feel like the sketch was made especially for me and my idea... Although I might have used a little creative licence with it. ;) But somehow I couldn't have done it any other way! This card also deserves to be entered to the ABC Challenge, where they're asking for cards about summer.

The window frame was cut from Core'dinations Whitewash cardstock and lightly sanded to give the impression of old, weather-worn wood. I didn't have matching Core'dinations regular cardstock, so my turqoise Bazzill was carefully treated with a white pencil to give a similar look. I chose the colours not only because of the DP, but also because they make me feel like summer right away! The Mamma Mia movie uses a lot of these colours as well... ;)
This card is all about layers and dimention, so I paper pieced the wrapping around the stack of books twice and highlighted it with a white pencil. The sail boat charm was a last minute addition, but I think it looks good there!

To everyone out there: have a warm, bright, sunny summer!
