♥ Summer harvest ♥

Summer...my favorite time of year. Family bbq's...swimming...kites flying...butterflies and hummingbirds and one of my favorite summer things to do...gardening. I love to plant flowers, herbs and vegetables and watch them grow. Ahh, nothing beats some fresh tomatoes and basil with olive oil. Or the beautiful colors of zinnias, impatiens and petunias. Pure summer sweetness!This card was made using this week's fabulous sketch over at the Card Patterns blog as well as being inspired by this week's theme challenge, Summer Fun over at The Shabby Tea Room.I used some gorgeous papers from Webster's Pages, Nature's Storybook collection. As well as some punched MS butterflies, Hero Arts pearls, Wright's ribbon and trim and a Melissa Frances rub-on.

Here is the Card Patterns sketch:Have a sweet night!!

Hugs....
