Summer Birthday


Mrs A has a new challenge over at the Butterfly Spot #12. This week it's "Summertime Butterflies." I used an I.O. Hollyhock die (thanks M A) with snippets of pink and white cardstock, adding 2 shades of green cardstock for the tall grass with a SNSS die. The butterfly was a snippet of pink with some Pizzazz Aplenty bling and the sentiment was done with a SNSS stamp. I have a fun summertime birthday card to add to my stash, but I should probably use it quickly as summertime is on the downswing already!

I'm also sharing this over at Di's Snippet Playground #137.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day!

Pretty card, Carol, using one of my favorite summertime Flowers (Hollyhock) saw a lot of pretty ones at Longwood last week. I should have taken some pics of them...pretty sure they won't be there the next time we go down...smile)

Love this one! That is one tiny die that has bitsy pieces. The 2-toned grass is so dimensional and love the pink & white posies too. The pale pink b'fly was very pretty with the other hot pink color. WTGo. TFS & Hugs

I love that hollyhock die and the tall grasses in front look great. Shhhhhh....I don't want summer to leave us. Frankly, our weather has been so cool compared to usual that I don't even feel as if we've had a summer.

This card just jumps out at the playground! What a beautiful garden!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

What a wonderful card! It definitely makes me think of the lazy days of summer. Too bad they are packing their bags and making their exit.
