July is Here!

Created this card to enter into four challenges:  Sketch Saturday (I chose Sketch #278 and flipped it vertically), The Paper Shelter (I chose their digital image "Charming Spring Girl"), two challenges required butterflies (Double D's and The Butterfly Challenge) I used vine background paper and colored the butterfly wings with red-vermillion to enter this card into the Butterfly Challenge.)  I printed the front sentiment on my computer and the inside sentiment is a freebie from TLC Creations (

I used an adorable image named "Coffee Hero" from Craftin' Desert Diva to make this card (available for just 99¢ from The background is made from an upcycled calendar page. I created the sentiment (front and inside) on my laptop and crafted the bat signal from scraps of vellum. So fun!

My final card for the SumMoreFun Mood Board challenge includes a champagne bottle image upcycled from a calendar page. I stamped Mr&Mrs on this bottle with a mini-stamp from an old SU set. Gold embossed an SU "Best Wishes" sentiment on vellum and added a bit more bling with gold photo corners. Layered leafy background paper behind these images to create an elegant wedding card. (This card matches the mood board wedding theme and also includes several of the colors.)
