Its Summer Time.....

Hi Friends...Its time for our monthly Calendar Girls posting. This month I chose the the our challenge. June Challenge... For most of us, June is the month that starts summer...many events are ending, graduation, weddings, flowers blooming and family vacations. My challenge is...using SC 388 (found in the SC thread), with any color combination create a card that best suits your beginning to summer, or summer plans. It could be a trip you are planning, a flower that is blooming, a wedding you are attending, or a graduation gathering. Whatever it could be...have fun creating a card to go with it. Michelle (the "new" 2012 Miss June) So far our summer hasn't been going like we planned, not having a vehicle means we had to make some changes. We have been gardening more, and re-doing some of the flower beds. I'm not very good at gardening, but we (my youngest daughter and I) like to try.
I really wanted to use this particular stamp set, it was given to me by friend. I used SU! cardstock and ink, self adhesive pearls, ric rac, patterned paper from my scrap bin. My angles are a little different the sketch challenge. Thanks for visiting today!
