Summer Beauty

Hiya all! Hope you're having a great week and get some sunshine. We're having some sun for a change...at the moment. It really lifts the summer spirit after the heavy rains we had! All work at school is done so it feels like a gift to be able to fully enjoy the beauty of the summer.

I've tried another Clean And Simple card, guess the three half pearls are too much, hehe! Well, it needed some umph!! The stamps are from Pink Paislee and they are stamped with Memento Bamboo Leaves. I cut out the ornament thingy from the sentiment stamp to get a cleaner look. The flowers are paper pieced with MME Bella Bella paper scraps...and I don't know if I dare to say that I added some Antique Linen Stickles to them.

I would like to enter:

  19. We don't dislike embellishments, Violet
    Pearls, gems are most welcome, we just like them to serve a purpose, not just in a corner etc
    Your card is just lovely
    Thanks so much
