Summer Breeze............



Hello Everyone!

After a good nights rest, I woke up super charged and in a mood to create some cards! I really missed my craft room while on my mini vacation but you know what they say...."absence makes the heart grow fonder". At least in my case it did....my fingers were itching to make something!



While trying to catch up on some card challenges, I decided to combine two challenges for my first card. The Just Magnolia Challenge is buttons and the Roses on Paper Challenge is Summer and vacation. This design paper by Piggy Tales (Ants Go Marching) literally screams summer! I mean, what is summer without ants, ladybugs, bees etc. Free Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.net Because the design paper is a bit busy, and I had to incorporate buttons for the JM challenge, I decided on a simple layout.



To avoid my buttons disappearing into the design paper, I simply adhered them onto the ribbon framing my image.

card details..........
stamp Magnolia, card stocks PTI, and Bazzill, DP Piggy Tales (Ants Go Marching), Copic Markers, ribbon, buttons, scrappers floss and half pearls.
