Summer! Spark your Creative Spirit

The season of sun, warm weather and long leisurely days!
Summer officially arrives at 4:09 pm- PST today!

The color of the Sun - Sunshine Yellow!
Along with Gray and a neutral shade.
Perfect color combination to celebrate the first day of Summer!


I had selected this patterned paper for my next card.
It could not of been more perfect!

Stamped the top portion of the Hero Arts stamp.
  The flowers are happy, fun and playful.
Just like Summertime!


I popped the flowers on the plaid patterned paper
using one quarter inch Foam Squares.
 Raising the flower squares and adding dimension.

 It is time to go outside and work in the flower garden!
Enjoy the Summer Season!

Imagination!
-Elaine
