Summer BBQ card and a Last Days of Summer blog hop.....

Hello!  Today I'd like to share a summer themed BBQ invitation that I created for the "Last Days of Summer" blog hop. There are 11 wonderful manufacturers participating in the hop (including Purple Onion Designs) which runs until Sunday Aug. 28 at 11:58 pm.  All you need to do is leave comments on all 11 of the participating manufacturer's blogs (see links below) for your chance to win some awesome prizes!!  Start hopping over at the POD blog.

Now a bit about my card....I wanted to keep the design simple so that it would be easy to create a set of them quickly.  I stamped the image and sentiment onto some Neenah cardstock and coloured the image with Copics. I punched the top with my notebook edge punch and then mounted it onto some gingham paper (I was going for a picnic look) before adding to a black card base. And of course no card is complete without some kind of embellishment so I added some black gingham ribbon and a red button.  Card complete in less than 10 minutes!

Thanks for stopping by!!
