August Card Chain Challenge at Lily Pad Cards

Here's my card for the August CCC over at Lily Pad Cards.  I always enjoy creating and sending a card for this exchange.  You still have until August 17th to sign-up, so give it a try!

The colors this month were aqua, hot chocolate and lipstick red.  I liked the sketch too but rotated it for my card.  Used the theme of friendship again this time.  Here's my card:
I started out with Hero Arts new Pool designer papers - just love this one with the Magical Background pattern in several different shades of aqua.  Added it to a Pool folded card.  Added a dotted stripe layer from Basic Grey's new Indie Bloom paper pad.  Stamped the friend definition from a Hero Arts clear set with four definition stamps CL479 - very handy.  Stamped onto another Pool designer paper with some French writing very lightly on it.  Overstamped with Hero Arts' hydrangea in Fired Brick Distress Ink - loved the look.  Used the same ink for the bitty Hello sentiment.

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend of creating!
