Make-a-Card Monday: A Teeny Tiny Hello

So, I fell in love with this Summer Suits set from Doodle Pantry when I had the opportunity to use it for the latest 'Summertime' Pile It On challenge. (Go check it out and join us.) This is the second card, as of right now anyway. Since I write my posts early, I may have already made a hundred cards with this set. :)  You can see the first card HERE.

I used a Sahara Sand card base and Tempting Turquoise mat. My image is colored with my Prismacolor pencils. The sequins are from an old Simon Says Stamp card kit (small) and Joanns. My image and mat were diecut with my Nestabilities circle dies.

I punched out my sentiment with my Stampin' Up oval punch.

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
