MY "SUMMER'S SEEDS" CARD FOR LOVE-LOVE-LOVE SUMMER CHALLENGE AT SHE'S A SASSY LADY

Well, good evening!!!  I hope everyone is doing well, in the best of health, and craft happy!

Did you see all the wonderful projects in Showcase #6?  Weren't they great?  I hope it gave you all an incentive to enter your projects into Showcase #7.  The fairies and I are really enthusiastic to showcase your projects.  The Registration link is now open on my sidebar.  Team Fairy Sheryl and I will be there waiting for you!!!

Okay, I do have a project to share.  I did this card for Sheila's "Love-Love-Love Summer" challenge.  I'm calling this card "Summer's Seeds" because the beauty of the season seems to be grown and harvested.  True, all seasons have their own beauty, but summer is the time where there's a burst of colors and natural fragrances in the air no other season has.  And what can be more beautiful than a butterfly with vibrant and multi-colored wings, roses, wild flowers, a rainbow after a brief rain?  And that only names a few!  Doesn't it seem like these things are sown and nurtured to grow, and to prepare us for every year?

For this card I used the Walk In My Garden cart to cut the watering can, the flowers in the grass, and garden tools; and, I used the Plantin cart for the words.  When I cut the flowers, I used white paper and used assorted colors of Stickles to color them.

The paper flowers on the side of the card are by Prima and the butterflies were punched using Anna Griffin's 3D paper punch.  I used clear and silver Stickles to simulate the water being poured from the watering can and sprayed the entire card with a lite spray of Pearl Glimmer Mist.

I put this card together in a hurry because I was working on getting together the post for the Awardee Showcase and the post for Showcase #7, all at the same time.  I thought the last day to get it entered was tomorrow, Tuesday; but then when I went back and re-read Sheila's post, the drawing isn't until next Tuesday, so I might even do another entry and invest more time into it.  But I still think this card came out pretty nice, and I hope everyone likes it!



Now all I have to do is make a pretty matching box for it and wait for just the right occasion to give to someone!

Until, my friends..

I'll be seeing you!
