Simon Says.......Summertime Blues

Happy Wednesday - welcome to our challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!

Our theme for you this week is "Summertime Blues"!  The team is playing with Hero Arts products.  I used one of my favorite Hero Arts dies for my card.

supplies: white and a variety of blues from Memory Box Ocean Blue collection paper pad, Hero Arts Flower Garden fancy die, (retired) Simon Sea You Soon sentiment, white embossing powder, Doodlebug blue sprinkles

I cut 6 shades of blues into 1/2" strips, and applied them diagonally to a 4 X 5 1/4 panel, which was then attached to my card base.  More of the blue papers were used for my sentiment panel, which was attached to the Flower Garden die before popping it above the card base with adhesive foam pieces.  

This Garden Die is so versatile - I've used it plain in white like this and also I've colored the individual leaves and flowers.  And the price point is very good, in my opinion!

Now it's your turn!  We have a $25.00 gift certificate 

to the amazing Simon Says Stamp store for 1 lucky random winner of this week's challenge!  I can't wait to see what you all make this week!
