It's Summer Time

Hello I have a New card to share with you using this sweet Stamp that came in my Summer Stamp Kit, I have no idea what this sweetie is called but I sure had fun coloring her up with my Distress Reinkers.
I used UTEE on all the image (I love this stuff I can't believe this was the first time I used it) , placed it in the freezer and bent it here and there to show the cracks, then I rubbed vintage photo to age the look. My Cherry blossoms are from IAMROSES, I love these flowers.
It was a pain to stitch on the the image with the UTEE, I thought my needle was going to break.
I made a little map from vellum, and tied some twine around it to hold it in place.
I used Frantage embossing powder on the cute little dolphin charm, again I mixed some of my old powders together to recreate a New look.
These are the colors I mixed.
I add a bit of each one.Orange,white and a clear chunky one.
I add them in this little plastic container.
I store them in this plastic container I purchased at Michael's, I have extras to mix other colors.
I added this cute tag that pulls out from behind the design paper, I stamped the tag with the stamps from the New Summer Magnolia Kit. I hope you found a bit of inspiration today, Thank you!

Wow! What a stunning card! I love everything about it! Love how you used the utee and cracked it after being in the freezer! I've heard of this but have never tried it. Might have to now that I've seen how cool it looks! Your coloring with the distress reinkers is stunning! Thanks for playing along with the IAR challenge and good Luck! -Leslie
