I've been having a wonderful summer, and I've seen some very cool and beautiful things as I've travelled. But one of the most beautiful things I've seen, and something that really makes me think of Summer are the flowers. I just love seeing gardens of flowers, and seeing all the beautiful Summer blooms. When I saw all the Summer themed challenges on different challenge blogs this week, I knew that I wanted to use flowers as my focal point.
This Summer card was made using Crate Paper's Pretty Party line, a Kaiser Craft wooden dress form, some buttons, hand-made scrunched seam binding, a sentiment stamp from Mark's Finest Papers, a Recollections flower, a PTI die cut, and a Freckled Fawn doily, among other goodies. I've entered this card in the Simple Salutations Challenge on Speedy TV.
I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:

I sure hope that all of you are enjoying your Summer. Don't forget to take time to stop and smell the roses. . . literally. I praise God for the beauty of Summer, and for the pretty flowers He has given us to enjoy. I'm also grateful for each of you, and I'm so glad you've stopped by to say hello.
Have a blessed day,
