Here is a little card I have made to depict Summertime.  That's a joke here in the UK as all we seem to get is wind and rain.  Anyway I started by layering my base card with cardstock and gingham digi paper.  Before placing red pearls in the corner I added a piece of red gingham ribbon.  I next made a panel using a scrap of paper out of my scrapbox and edging it with a bit of heart lace.  Next I coloured the image with promarkers and layered it before attaching with foam pads.  Well, that's it, quick and easy.  Hope you like it, thanks for looking.
