In the summertime....

Good afternoon friends,
Wednesday is almost done and then the weekend isn't far away, not that I am wishing the week away.  I hope it has been a good week so far and that the excessive heat in some places has maybe made way for more bearable summer days. We have had a lovely day today with mild temps of 21 deg.

The card I have for you could be a lovely summertime one.
I saw this particular card on the internet and tracked it down to a tutorial at Splitcoaststampers with Bibiana showing the perfect way to create this card, and it is not difficult.



I used the following:
Paper...Patterned papers, from Country Crafts, a local supplier.  Inked it with distress inks.

Image....Snoesje from Marianne Design, coloured with distress inks.
Tree and grass diecuts ...Marianne Design
Label ...Marianne Design
Flower border...Memory box.
Birds..Memory box
Butterflies...assorted punches
Sentiment..from a local stamping company..Country Crafts, which I cut up to place in various positions.

I think itfits in with the following challenges:

Anything goes challenge #97...Anything goes
Cuttlebug Mania challenge...Shaped card
C is for Challenge #2...Summer
Through the Craftroom Door...Anything goes
Craftin Desert Divas... Birthdays
Craft Your Passion challenge #172

Wishing you all a happy week and thanks for visiting. Take care and see you soon.
Love Ursula
