Summer is Here!

Summer is alive and doing well! I am enjoying the sunshine, daylight til 9:30 pm and watching my garden grow! I've had a busy several months! I made it through my child's senior year...*ahem* let me repeat...I made through senior year...whooo-hooo. Now I feel like I can scrap and create something non-cap and gown related :) Although I enjoyed making graduation cake pops and invitations I must say the summer colors of green, blue, yellow and pink are CALLING me!!! With all the graduation things going on I did find the time to make a card...or two, yep TWO cards...sheesh! They both came out better than I expected so I am thrilled with the outcome.

This is the front of the card. I like how the colors came together and the flowers with the bling. I used my
Gypsy to size up the dress on this card, from the Forever Young cart, Prima roses and recollection bling. Tim
Holtz distress ink (Walnut Stain) and Liquid Pearls.  

This was my first time trying perfect pearls! I kept touching them while they were still wet, ugh! but they were easy to fix

The sentiment is from AmyR stamps, very nice "Mother" stamp set.
Overall I am pleased with the outcome. I had a lot of "firsts" with this card. This was the first time I used perfect pearls, fabric trim, flat back pearls  and get this people roses!!! Yes roses...I have three boys so I don't dabble much in flowers but I will more :) There are tons of scrap layouts that need my attention :)
Thanks for stopping by and perhaps this blog of mine will get more attention now that the tassel has been flipped! Make it a GREAT day!
