Goodbye Summer

Hello! Well since today is the last day of summer I thought I'd make a summery card. It sure is a warm day here, near 90! Found several challenges using punches this week, gave me a chance to use my new Daisy chain punch, LOVE this punch! I also used another new embossing folder from the craft show I was at the other weekend. This one is by Crafts-Too also and called Butterflies, Love it! It gives a clear and deep embossed image, I even like the depossed side. I have one more new one from them to try yet. This card also uses my much neglected Prisma colored pencils, since I've discovered Copics they don't get used very often. I do like the softness of them on this card though, guess I need to use them more often! Challenges and supplies used is listed below. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy this last day of summer!!

Hi Janice

Oh I hope it isn't the last day of summer .. .. .. I'm not ready for it to disappear just yet LOL!!!

Your card is lovely. The way you have embellished with butterflies to match those on your gorgeous image is really eye catching.

Everything matches so well.
