Bright Summer Fun


Wow, it has been a while since my last post. I hope that you are all enjoying a bright and sunny weekend. I am about to go finish off my garden but before I do, I wanted to share a sunny little card with you. I wanted to create a card for Father's Day and this Edwin from the Butterfly Dreams collection was perfect. I have actually managed to fit four stamped images on this card.

All of the papers for this card are from MME. and the flowers are Wild Orchid. Yes, I know some of you may be questioning the fact that I added flowers to a masculine card but I am lucky that my father likes the gardens and will not mind a few flowers on his card. It is hard to see in the photo but I have also added stickles to the flowers, snail and butterflies for some summer sparkle.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges:
