The Colors of Summer...

I LOVE seeing all the pretty flowers in the summertime! I'm not a green-thumb person at all!!! Trust me... when plants and flowers come to me... it's like the grim reaper telling them... "it's time". HA! Although, my DH has been known to rescue one now and then from my grip and keep it thriving. His last resurrection was a poinsettia plant I got from an Earl May for doing a vendor fair exhibit there. It was a HUGE one and I believe the price tag on it was $40. I guess he figured since I got it for free he should TRY to make it last. That was about 2 years ago... it's still going strong.. no thanks to me! For this card I used Melanie Muenchinger's, A Year of Flowers, and simply stamped them and colored each one with my Copic markers. I also added the flower from the Gina K Designs StampTV Kit. (Love that flower.) I cut each separately and mounted them using Pop Dots. The leaves I just stuck here and there. I used my oval punch, the LARGE one from SU, once again and used it to also cut off one end, making it appear to be a vase. I covered with DP and arranged the stems (obviously) so they were going IN the vase! LOL A small shimmery bow and that's it. I wish the front of my house had all these beautiful flowers, but they thrive better on paper for me... hee hee. Have a great day and stop to notice all the wonderful bright, cheery flowers around the world today. They make me smile! Signature
