Summer Flower


This is just a summer card to say "hello"! I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. It's a hot one for sure, isn't it! Whew! But winter will be here soon enough I guess.

This image is from Designed2Delight.......isn't it just the cutest! This is for their progressive challenge. I'm posting it today (a few days before the deadline) because I want to make sure and get the next free image for playing - and - I have a big order of baby/children's cards to complete so may get too busy later in the week to complete it. I'm also going to post it for the CAS-tastic Wednesday Challenge. The object of this weeks challenge was to create a summer themed card. This really is not anywhere close to my version of clean and simple but I think to alot of ladies, it probably would qualify.

I used Summer Sun, Wild Wasabi, White, and some patterned paper I had in my stash. I stamped the image twice and cut the flower out and popped it up. You can barely see the little mouse poking his head out of the grass! The bee (CTMH) was stamped, then cut out, and added to the flower.

Thanks for stopping by.................

This is really cute and cheery. I like the patterned paper and the popped up flower with the button center. My fave part is the adorable little mousie peeking up.

Lynn I really like the dimension on the flower and I can't believe you cut that tiny little bee out i thought it was a brad or something. :) Your dp matches perfectly
