Hello Summer!! It’s an Echo Park Blog Hop…

Good Morning!  Today the Echo Park Paper Design Team is showcasing projects from the "Hello, Summer" collection.

Hello-Summer-DT-Blog-Hop-Graphic

I wanted to share this quick little “thanks” card I put together using just a few of the fun papers and sticker embellishments from the “Hello Summer” line.

Of course I had to use some fun pop dots behind those cute cloud stickers – just to add a bit of dimension…and the same goes for the sun and “thanks” circle.  Check out that cute pink banner.  I hand cut that baby from the patterned paper – it was easy and since I was using it for a card, I just snipped it in half and doubled it up to make it into TWO banners!
