You will get to see ALL of the new sets in action as you sit back and enjoy the hop! Then head on over to the Krafty Shop because ALL of the new stamp sets are NOW AVAILABLE!

I kept this card very simple!  I stamped the image and sentiment with clear ink and then embossed it with White embossing powder.  After I applied distress ink to get the water color effect.  I used Scattered Straw, Peeled Paint, salty Ocean, Brushed Corduroy and Ground Espresso.  Then I just layered it with black, white and blue card stock.  Very simple but quite effective!
