TT#4- Celebrate Summer

Hope you are having a happy Tuesday! There is another Tuesday Throwdown challenge for this week, Celebrate Summer! I know I sure am now that it is finally warm! I love having the windows open at night and hearing the crickets and the birds early in the morning. For my card I pulled out my Kim Hughes, Summer Trees, a set that *shhh, don't tell* hadn't seen ink yet! It's super cute and fun to play with. All the images are from this set. I paper pieced the bird, tree, and clouds and colored the fence in with Prismacolor pencils and left them unblended for a more "wood" like look. The sun is a 1" punched piece of cardstock. A bit of knotted ribbon finished it off. I hope you are enjoying a beautiful summer day! Thanks for dropping by:)
