Summer Beauty

Today is the First of July...already! Summer is speeding along, as usual! I hope you are all enjoying summertime wherever you are...the warm, balmy evenings, the cool mornings with hundreds of happy chirping birds, and the sun-filled days ready for boating, swimming, gardening, camping...all those things we wait all winter for! 
Here is a card I made for my daughter, Chris, whose summer birthday is the end of July.

Stunning card Sandie, I love the tones you've used and your sentiment is perfect and so are your wonderful embellishments. Those earrings look totally amazing what a great way to recycle them. This is a lovely card and thanks so much for sharing it with us over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and good luck.

Sorry I'm so late commenting from the Cropstop blog...we've had technical issues this week! Hoping things will get back to normal soon.
