Summer Fun & Bring on the Sun

Happy Monday, all! =) Hope you all had a lovely weekend. Here is my card for the May Challenge over at Inspiration Journal.

This month's challenge is Don't Quote Me, use a favorite quote on your project for a chance to win!

I paired my quote with the adorable girl from The Greeting Farm's OA Summer Fun set. She is stamped and colored on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock with Copic markers then fussy cut out.

The patterned paper is from Park Bench 6x6 Paper Pad by Fancy Pants. The quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson is included in the Bring on the Sun set by Technique Tuesday. In order for the quote to fit in the Fancy Frame base die cut, I partially masked the quote and stamped it a couple of words at a time.

That's all for now. Don't forget to submit your favorite quote project here for a chance to win 50 Emporium Dollars to use in the Inspiration Emporium Store! You can always use discount code wonderland at check out when you shop in the IE Store to receive 10% off your entire order! =)

Have a sunshiny day and thanks for stopping by!
