Crafty Cardmakers new challenge for this  fortnight is 'Summer'. You can  interpret this theme as you like as long as its based on something associated with the season.You can create anything you like, card, tags, etc as long as it meets the challenge and the 15 or less challenge entry rule.
My summer garden is  always blooming in poppies,glorious  yellow Icelandic, fluffy red annuals and towering red orange orientals. The yellows will grow all season long but the orientals have a brief few weeks and then they are gone with the odd one or two blooms appearing in the late summer.   I look forward to them every year.

This card is for a wonderful friend and close neighbour. The card is simplistic but I am pleased with how it turned out.

Stamp: digital stamp from Just Inklined
Dies: Spellbinders ovals, Dee's Distinctively Lattice 2
Embossing Folder: Polka Dots
Other. ribbon and button from stash
