Skipping Stones & RCC

I've got a card to share today! :) I've used the beautiful new Skipping Stones Breathtaking Butterflies (Thanks, Karen!!!) Stamps to create my focal point. I stamped the background in navy, and embossed the top with white diamond embossing powder. The patterned paper is ooooolllld JBS, and I even embossed a nestie scallop frame. I tied a bit of navy burlap string, also using it for antennae. If you are wondering why the 6 'diamonds' under the sentiment- this card is for my husband's Aunt & Uncle's 60th wedding anniversary- and diamonds are the theme for 60 years!
So I will link to Skipping Stones challenge, the Ribbon Carousel's challenge & Kim Kesti's challenge! (Erin will be so proud! lol)
And here's a couple of pics from our 4th- it's rare to get a family shot!
 And my cutie parents celebrated with us! :)
 And because this guy came for a visit in my golden full-moon maple this morning, I'll share his fun pic too!
Summer FINALLY arrived in the PNW- the joke is that it shows up on the 5th of July, but this year it was the 4th!!! So we're about to head out for some slip & slide fun!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
