Sisterhood Summer Heat ...

Today there's a new challenge over at The Sisterhood of Crafters
and Vickie has asked us to create with the theme

(hot colors or summer theme)

I guess you could say I combined both ideas on my card.

I began with the HOT COLORS idea but as time went on
it became more of a summertime ocean scene
and since I had this fabulous 'Inspired by Stamping'
sentiment stamp, my card quickly turned into a card of encouragement.
And, I'm okay with that!

The sky background paper is from a VERY OLD DCWV 12x12 pack
as is the water paper which I've 'torn' to create waves and depth.
The sky & water paper was so similar in color that
I decided to sponge a bit of TH 'Picked Raspberry' distress
ink over the white clouds and it worked perfectly!

Please be sure to pop over to see the amazing creation my sisters
have created for you today!  And then, come join in the fun!
