papertrey july blog hop



From Nichole’s blog: This month's inspiration is all about pairing up beautiful summer colors as this wonderful season begins to come to a close.  Put together some citrusy hues along with some pretty floral images to create the perfect project that embodies everything summer.


To me, summer is not anywhere near its close, but the colors Nichole chose definitely have the feel of late summer and so does my card. Guess I’ll have to wait until early September to mail it.



Go here to get your fill of eye candy.
