Happy, Not Merry

Hello.  Welcome.  It's the hottest day of the year so far!  T-shirts and ice creams all round.  So I checked the xmas challenges LOL and came up with this......

I cut my card base using my Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle die, stamped Unity Stamp Co. Owl Pals, masked and stamped Hero Arts Stunning Snowflakes with Stormy Sky distress ink.  I did a little ink pad dance along the bottom with my VersaMagic Aegean Blue chalk ink and stamped the PaperArtsy sentiment, again with Stormy Sky.  This is my second attempt at this card LOL.  In the first version I tried colouring my Owl Pals and let's just say it got ugly.  Maybe I will try and fix them later......
