Summer Card for a HOT DAY!

Good morning,

Have any of you ever made a card and envy that you just PLAIN HATE!?!?!! Well, this one is it for me. I hate everything about it but the image. The image is just so cute!! I love all of those little Anya Girls. I did this card for the Colour Create Challenge. I tell you it was a challenge for me!! I don't do yellow and green.......just never works out for me. I don't even have many yellows in my stash at all. :o( Anyway, here is my try at this challenge I have also done the extra options. Which are show the inside of card and make an envy.

I will be gone for about 10 to 12 days on a small holiday so I won't be posting anything for a few weeks. Hope to go some where that is cooler than here. :o).........

This stamp can be bought at Michelle's Scrapbooking.

Thanks for stopping by to visit me today and Happy July 4th to all of you that are Celebrating. I would love to hear from you so say hello to me in the comments.

Have a wonderful day,

Front of envy and front of card......

know what its like to spend a lot of time working on something, and then not being to happy about it because it just not you. However I think its fab, think the colours have a very summery feel, I love the glittery palm tree, and her shiney handbag is just to cute. Have a fab hol!!
