Looks like summer

Sadly, the post title does not refer to the weather here. It is supposed to warm up a bit toward the end of the week, but seeing as how we're getting some light snow flurries this afternoon, it will be quite awhile before it looks like summer outside my window. The summery goodness I do have to share with you, though, is this card:

Supplies (all Stampin' Up!® ):
Stamps: Bright Blossoms, Petite Pairs
Paper: Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper (DSP); Whisper White, Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade card stock
Ink: Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade, Rich Razzleberry, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight
Accessories: 1-1/4" circle punch, Postage Stamp punch, Island Indigo baker's twine, Dimensionals

This was a quick card to make and could be suitable for many occasions simply by changing the sentiment. You could even omit the sentiment, add a fourth flower image instead and make a set of blank cards to give as a gift.

The strip of DSP along the bottom of the card is probably my favorite pattern from the Summer Smooches pack. Using a small piece such as this on a card adds some fun color and detail to your design -- and helps the sheet of DSP go a long way!

Looking at this card does make it a little easier to believe that summer is on its way. Thanks for stopping by!
