"The clever cat eats cheese and breathes down rat holes with baited breath."
Summer to me means clear blue skies with bright sunshine and flowers. Right now in early summer, the pastures around our house have an array of wildflowers blooming. My favorites are the wild daisies with their bright white petals and sunny centers.
So when I was asked to make an encouragement card, I knew what colors I wanted to use. I also knew I wanted it to have fresh clean lines and only a touch of frill.
I used several pieces of paper that I won as part of a blog prize that I think are from GCD Studios, but I am not sure. I also used paper and cardstock from DCWV and Coredinations. My stamped sentiment verse is from Clear Dollar Stamps - Scriptures of Peace set. (So sad they are not still making their clear acrylics!)

I also used two challenges as inspirations for this card:
#1 - The colors I chose were from the current Just Add Ink challenge where you choose 3 of the 5 colors for your card. Guess which ones I chose. :)
#2 - The sketch I followed is the current one from Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2. I knew all the layers would look great with the papers I wanted to use.
Thank you for stopping by to see my encouragement card. Have a blessed and peaceful Sunday and new week.
