Summer Fun

Well in July I think we managed a few days of Summer so it inspired me to make this card. Again it is another birthday card. They seem to come thick & fast around this time of year :-)

I am not generally an ice-cream colour person but thought I would try it for a change & I'm pretty pleased with the way things turned out.

 The image was paper pieced using some freebie papers I downloaded & coloured with the usual Promarkers :-)


I took the papers through to the inside of the card & added a little tag in the centre. x Clare x
