Tuesday Throwdown-Fun in the Sun

This week our Tuesday Throwdown challenge #57 is Fun in the Sun. We are sponsored by Pink Cat Studio where you can find lots of adorable digis of numerous kinds.

I chose 'Pretty Birds in Tree' for my card and colored with Copics, sponged some yellow for sunshine, added a couple of butterflies,  and punched some green grass. I'm matting on a Spellbinders Blossom die cut and using the Spellbinders Shapeabilities ribbon banners for stamping my sentiment.

I'm entering my card also into these challenges:
Crazy 4 Challenges: #95- Summer Themed card
One Stop Craft Challenge #139-Summer Time
Card Makin' Mamas #24-Summertime

Recipe:
Stamps-Pink Cat Studio digi called Pretty Birds in Tree, Flourishes Humming Along (sentiment)
Paper: PTI white cardstock, unknown red cs, Stampin'Up! Welcome Neighbor dsp paper pad on top, unknown dp on bottom,  green scraps
Accessories: raffia, Mark Richards gold metal brads, Martha Stewart class butterfly punch, Spellbinders Shapeabilities ribbon banners

Oooh, absolutely gorgeous! (I knew this was your card as soon as it saw it at Tuesday Throwdown!) Hope it cools down a wee bit for you ... we start to melt here when it hits the mid-70s, which only happens for a few days in the summer!
