Summer like AYSI!

What do a circle, brad, stripes, dark blue, and a bird have in common?!?!  It's not a riddle it's your challenge this week!  
If you choose to accept it, which I hope you do please use these items in your design and follow your inspiration.  I wandered around my stamp room and came up with a beachy design. 

So this card may bring you back to the old school.  Remember when we used to always use velum overlays?  I watercolored the card and then layered it up added the necessary brad and here you go!  It was great to have a challenge and use some items that I haven't in a long time, I'll admit the stripes and the brad threw me for a loop!

AYSI September

It's time for another AYSI Challenge!  

I really like the fanciness of this layout that Amanda created.  Wedding invitations come to mind!  Simple thank you cards or even photo Christmas cards.  

For my card I kept it more simple, big surprise ;) It just seems to be my stamping style these days I guess!  However, I did make my own ink pad to stamp the leafs.  I'll add some pictures of the ink pad I made later.
