Four Seasons Challenge - Summer


 Hello Friends

Over at the Four Seasons Challenge Blog,
our theme this month is . . .

Anything Goes - SUMMER

check out this fabulous inspiration board Diane has created to help inspire you . . .


Such a busy time of year so for today's card, I let this beautiful paper panel from the Mintay 'Seaside Escape' do the heavy work.

 Mintay Papers - Seaside Escape - 6 x 6 Paper Pack (MT-SEA-08)

 I then simply added a sentiment using one of the Creative Expressions 'Wordies Sentiment Sheets'.
