For my card I used the Sand Castle and Happy Summer Stamps from the NEW 9000 Summer Series. Doesn't the Sand Castle just look so real? I stamped it in brown on white cardstock and sponged with blue ink inside a circle mask to frame it. I created corners with a Martha Stewart shells punch and stamped the Happy Summer sentiment on a flag piece I created with a few snips of my scissors.

Your summer would be even happier if you follow the blog hop, see the awesome cards and collect the words for a chance at all the fun new summer stamps! Happy summer blog hopping!!

I am entering this card in the Summer challenges at Dream Valley Challenges and Paper Playtime.

Stamping smiles, Karen

What an amazing card! I'd never seen that border punch before. That's definitely going to the top of my shopping list. :) That sand castle looks like you can step into it. Thanks for playing with us at Paper Playtime.
