Design Team Announcement!

Hey you guys! I have some great news. A few months ago there was a DT call on Eclectic Ellapu; I tried out for the team and I made it! YEY-YAH! I am so excited to be a part of such a talented group of paper crafters.  I am ready to stretch my crafting imagination as far it will go.  I am also looking forward to seeing all of your creative works of art in the monthly challenges to come.  So, let's get started... For the June challenge (my 1st DT project-big smile) we have 2 themes you can choose from.  The pink team did inspiration projects themed mid-summer.  The project can be anything about the summer, not just the play "A Midsummer Night's ..."  For my DT inspiration, I chose to make a card using a cute little image I found on Google (not sure who the artist is).   My card layout inspiration came from a card done by Gabrielle Pollaco.  This card has lots of layers and distressing.  For this project I was very grateful to have my Zutter electric distresser.  My card base is A2 size; however, I had to make a little modification because of all the layers and distressing.  I added a 1/8" gusset to make sure the card would stand and close properly for mailing.  See below for a list of the supplies used to make this card.
