A Summer Garden

Hello Everyone!  Summer has hit full force! We have very hot and humid weather. We have also been revamping our front flower bed. We yanked out overgrown bushes and planted smaller bushes and flowers. It looks so much better! Speaking of flower beds, I want to show you a card I made using the new Sparkle N Sprinkle  stamp set,Daisies 619. This is such a lovely stamp set. I really enjoyed making my card with it.

I had fun using a lot of embossing folders and dies as well. I am glad I got to use the new bird die that my good friend gave me for my birthday. I used Glisten embossing powder EP135 on them so that they would stand out more.


Bubblegum glitter G1088 was used on the large pink flower. You can click here for further                                                           instructions on how to make this card.
