Peaceful Summer Living

  PalsPaperArts 102 has a cool title for their challenge.

"Summertime and the Livin' is Easy".

The title alone is inspirational. 

Here is my card.

based on this gorgeous photo...

I loved the colors in this photo, and the slats of wood. 

I used my Scor-Pal to make tiles, like in a bathroom.

I was inspired by Leanne's site, which was where I first saw this look.

Running my memento ink over the tiles, I then embossed it with my Sizzix shells embossing folder for a subtle texture.

The strip across the center was decorated with tissue pieces cut from my Papertrey eyelet lace border die.

I figured this sentiment from JustRite's Simple Blessings was perfect for this card.

Thanks for stopping in. ;)
