Summer Fun!

It's Friday! And the weekend is near. I put together a card today that turned out pretty cute. The image is Birdie from Phindy's Place. She has the most adorable little kid images. I did alot of embossing on this card and my flowers match the flowers in the DP. I just happened to have a punch already with this flower so I thought I would just use it. The sketch is from A Gem of Challenge and here is the sketch:

Cardstock - CS is SU and DP is from my stash
Image - Phindy's Place
Die Cuts - Spellbinder Circle and Scalloped Circle; Memory Box Puffy Clouds; MFT Die-namics Decorative Doily Duo
Sentiment - SU Sunny Fun set and is stamped with SU Tangerine Tango
Embossing Folders - Sizzix for SU and Sizzix
Punches - Flowers are Petite Petals by McGill and Leaves are by the Punch Bunch; SU Word Window and Modern Label
Pearls - Recollections for Michael's
Sky background was chalked in light blue
