Summer Swing

 
Hey Everybody,
 
Hope everyone had a super duper great weekend.  I got to spend some time with my older and younger brother (a rare occasion when they are both here), and I managed to whack my foot with a hay rake...lol, and now it hurts.  Ah but it is too far from my heart to be concerned, just something I can laugh about when it stops hurting.
 
Ok, so on to my card.  I've had this way to adorable image called "Summer Swing Time" (by Di's Digi Stamps), for quite some time and why I haven't used it before now is beyond me, because, I just totally love ALL her creations.  They are having a "anything but square" challenge, and so I was off and creating.  As usual, I've colored it with my Pro Markers.
 
Other mediums used:
 
Paper: Floral print and green from Michaels sale rack, and gimp from my good friend Tona.
Bow: Made from ribbon from my stash
Punches: (print) Baby's Breath by Easy Cut Multi Punch, and the white I used some scalloped scissors I got at a moving sale.
Flowers & Stems:  Most from my stash, but the two blue flowers were white and I took them apart and colored them go with the other colors.
Pearls: Stash
 
I would also like to mention that this card was inspired by Lyndsey Marie Designs.  Not only are her creations stunning, she has tutorials and lots of other things to share.  So, do yourself a favor and stop by her blog.
 
Thank you so very much for taking the time out of your day, and stopping by.
