Die Cut Dreams "Summer"

Good morning.

All back to normal after the long weekend. I didn't do much but had a relaxing time.

The theme at Die Cut Dreams this week is "Summer". Well summer makes me think of flowers so here is my card with "pretty flowers all in a row".

The flower stamp is from the SU! "Seeing Spots" set (thanks Emma!). I stamped the flowers using Whispers pens and drew on the stems. I made the leaves by cutting the petals off punched daisies (using an X-cut small daisy punch). I have run around the edge of the card with a Scor-bug, but this photo isn't great and it doesn't show (if you want a closer look you can click on the picture to enlarge it). The sentiment I have used is from Elzybells.

Thank you for visiting my blog today and taking a look at this card.

Have a great week!

Clare xx

This is a lovely card Clare. Very elegant. I may have to pinch the idea for cards I need to make for a sale of work soon. The edge just finishes it off.

Have a great day,
