Hi Everyone! I hope you are keeping cool. I love summer, but like to stay inside with the air on on these very hot days. What I like about summer are pretty flowers, butterflies and daylight savings time! The white on my card reminds me of the extra hour of daylight! While making this card I was reminded of the old tune, "In the Good Old Summer Time." So here is my summer card using punches, pearls and dies!

I used the Flower Cheery Lynn die and cut from white glitter paper for the background of the image. The butterfly is also a Cheery Lynn die and my favorite! I made the square frame using a Martha Stewart corner and border punch. Here is a close up where you can see the sparkle better on the flower die.

TIP:  I love making white on white cards and to make the details show more I use pop dots to lift some layers. This adds depth and dimension. 

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day!

Fabulous white on white card. It really does make the colors on the image pop. I'm so far behind on my commenting and missed lots of your wonderful projects but am slowly trying to catch back up.
