A Perfect Summer Day

This is the card that I made for my Mother to give to my MIL for her 80th Birthday.


MIL loves Thomas Kinkade and she loved all of the thatched cottages that we saw when we took her away to Dorset for a few days to celebrate her birthday so I decided to use an image from Joanna Sheen's Thomas Kinkade CD.


I used papers from Pink Petticoat and the sentiment is from an Ooh La La Creations CD.


The numbers are a Die-namics number die and I added some pearls and ribbon from my stash.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Through the Purple Haze Challenge 101 - Anything Goes
As You Like It Challenge - Favourite Patterned or Embossed Papers & Why (Patterned papers because there is such a wonderful variety on offer)

Thank you for calling today, please leave a comment so that I know you've been and will be able to come and visit you.

If only I could live in a cottage like this in the English country side it would be a perfect day. I don't need the horses. Just a cottage like this in the country or a small village would be nice! Love your card Sugar!
