(I have been BUSY BUSY!! You have NO idea! LOL! More to come.)

Now for some eye candy 😀

funky-fleurs.jpg Summer Fun Flowers

I just LOVE these colors together! I had so much fun making this card. Sometimes you need to know WHEN to stop. I wanted to add MORE but think that would have been overboard.

 Le Jardin is another one of my favorite flower sets. You cannot see by the photo, but I used a glitter pen along all the blue areas of the flowers. SO PRETTY and shimmery in person. LOVE IT!

I know I have said this before, but sometimes you NEED a layer. You don’t want it to be to heavy or overbearing, so that is when vellum cardstock comes in handy!!

 See my pumpkin layer? It needed another layer, but nothing over the top, or too contrasting in color that it would draw your eye away from the focus of the card, so I used vellum cardstock. I get mine from Stampin Up, and and HAPPY to say that Papertrey Ink is going to be carrying it as well.

I hope you like my card as much as I do! LOL! I just can’t get over this color combo-sky, olive, pumpkin-just YUM!

LAD is one of the only companies who releases every quarter, rather than monthly. I do post samples monthly, so just keep your eyes open if you want to see more of LAD, and check my sidebar for the other design team member’s blogs, who also feature samples through the month as well.

There is of course a gallery (aka Sketchbook) of inspiration-don’t miss that too.

Well that is all for today. Thanks for reading.
