{ Impression Obsession DT challenge - Lazy Days of Summer }

Hello and welcome to another Impression Obsession DT challenge. You know, we have challenges every other week - DETAILS HERE - if you play you could win a $25 gift certificate to the Impression Obsession store.

For this card I wanted to try a round card for the Mojo Monday 145 sketch. It is so easy now that I have my Cricut Expression. I used scalloped circle Nestie SVG file from Penny Duncan Creations. Using my SCAL I welded the two shapes together to make a card. The Core'dinations cardstock is embossed with Cuttlebug embossing folder. 

 I stamped blue patterned paper with Cover-a-Card Distressed Corduroy (CC047) using blue ink. I love the way that looks and I will be using that stamp again! The yellow crepe paper is left over from my Summer Mini kit  that I am giving away.

Flower 1 (C5571) was stamped with Scarlet Glimmer Mist and cut out. It was left over from another project. I added Sunshine Yellow Flower Soft to the flower center.
The butterfly is from Lucky Ladybugs stamp set (CL208). I added Sunshine Yellow, Delphinium Blue and Sage Ultra Fina Flower Soft to the butterfly.

The Journaling I (WP165) note background is stamped with Cover-a-card Roses (CC043). The sentiment is from Summer Seals (CL107) stamp set . I tucked a little stamped scallop behind the flower and that is from Happiness Is? (CL122).

Wow, how many stamp sets did I use? My favorites are always around so I reach for them. Plus, when I make things I experiment and save little bits and pieces that I later use on other projects. Flower, journaling note and the scalloped circle...all left over from different projects.
