July's SFYTT



I decided I had better get this SFYTT card done before July sneaks away on me.  When in summer mode I don't pay that much attention to the calendar dates or even days of the week at times so best I do it now LOL!

The three circles brought to mind a group of three flowers so out came my Verve flower stamps and dies.  Have I told you recently how much I love my Verve flowers and the coordinating leaf and flower dies are amazing!

I started off with this scrap piece of Costco DP I tripped across and decided to  keep it on the black and white side with a pop of colour.  Lucky for me this also qualifies for the Play Date Cafe challenge this week - score!

I'm pretty happy with this card and it came together quite quickly which is always a bonus for me :)  Bonus: two posts this week!

Have a fabulous day and thanks for popping in for a visit.

Paper:  Costco DP, Pretty in Pink, Going Grey

I have a weakness for pink/black/white--so this card really caught my eye, Marisa!! Your twine looks so sweet, and I love the look of your flower stamps/dies. Super work!
