My Paper Pumpkin August 2016 Kit Bold Botanicals - Alternate Card Idea #2

 I am sooo loving this month's Paper Pumpkin kit, Bold Botanicals!
In the video below you can see everything included in the kit this month and how to create the projects as they were originally designed.

But, I always like to switch things up a bit :)
I like to tweak the designs and think of ways to stretch my kits to create even more cards.

For this card, I used the card bases from the kit that were leftover because I created card bases from card stock in my stash for the last card I made.  The Calypso Coral piece that I stamped was a layering piece for the note card in this kit, but I thought that watercolor pattern was too pretty to hide so I used it front and center on this card.

I really love this color scheme!  The last card that I created with this kit was very "Fall" looking, and by switching up some of the pieces I really this this card looks much more Summer-y.  It really looks like August too me.  You know those perfet end of Summer days with sunny skies, warm days and brisk nights?  I can feel this heat wave ending already! :)

I think my favorite part of creating this card was the coloring.  The stamp set that came with the kit this month is perfect for coloring.  I just find coloring so relaxing!  I used a scrap of watercolor paper for this part because I really love how the Stampin' Up! Markers work with watercolor paper.  I had so much fun with it that I kept going and created a matching envelope!
