Lia Stampz Challenge #47 - SUMMER

Hello, my friends!
*I am off on a little holiday! I have a couple of posts scheduled while I'm away but I won't be doing any blogging until sometime later next week!
Today begins another new challenge over at Lia Stampz! We had some really beautiful entries in our Color Scheme challenge. Thank you to those of you who participated! :o)
The new challenge is "Summer" so I've created a fun summertime card! Summer's days are numbered, you know, and Fall is coming quick!
I've used the Lia Stampz image called Bicycle and you can find it at Whimsy Stamps right HERE. All of Lia's other images are available HERE.
I created another scene card for this challenge. For some reason the colored background is not showing up but the sky is blue and the grass is green! I punched some grass and cut some clouds. I stamped some flowers, colored them up and cut them out. I was inspired to frame the image this way by Natalie and her lovely card here at Delightful Details.
So pop on over to Lia Stampz and join in the fun "Summer" challenge! You have until August 31st to participate! I hope you all have happy Summer days and I'll be around to see you when I'm back! :o)
