A Hummer of A Summer…

I don’t know why I like to name my cards, but this just came to me as soon as I started to edit the card.  Of course, the image is by Mo Manning. 

I did this on the off chance that I might be chosen to be a guest designer in the future.  That would be so great!

Close up of top of card and bottom of card.

It’s amazing how many talented ladies and men there are who like to do cards, etc.  I know it’s not easy to choose just one project.

The recipe for my card is, as I mentioned earlier, my image by Mo Manning; paper by Basic Grey and DCWV, Lotus Pendant by Spellbinder's; border punch by MS; roses, jewels, bow, buttons and sentiment from my stash.

I’m entering this in the following challenges:

Mo’s Digital Challenge – easel card with animal and/or bird
Little Claire’s – wings
Crafty Ann’s – summer
Stamp Something – digi
Catch the Bug – anything
One Stitch At A Time – digi
Incy Wincy Designs – something old – image, something new – lotus pendant
I Did It – children
Cupcake Craft Challenges – sewing
Happileigh Challenge – more than 1 fold
Heart Song Inspirations – circles – buttons and center of pendant
Paper Creations Ink – stitching
Stamps + Fun = Creativity – sketch
Craft Us Crazy – anything
Stampin’ For the Weekend – spots & dots
Basic Grey Challenges – summer – BG paper
Gingerloft Challenge – summer
AI Factory Challenge – anything
Digi’s With Attitude – anything
Creative Craft Challenges – summertime
Everybody Art-Challenge – summer

Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting my blog.  I’d love to hear from you.  But I understand if you’re too busy to drop a line.

Hugs,

dj

Well, Buttons are very simple but it looks very stylish as a flower with ribbon. I like your idea, it is best to wear with matching dresses.
