Polka Doodles Challenge - Summer Theme

Morning everyone, it's Friday yet again and I don't know where the last week has gone. I've been doing lots of crafting but can't show you anything yet as most of it has been samples for Nikky who will be demoing at the craft show on 17 and 18 July at Doncaster Race Course. She will have loads of new products with her and all the DT have been making samples for the show. If you're going, do go and say hello and have a look at the new stuff, you can take it from me that it's fabulous!
On to this weeks challenge which has been chosen by Enfys and owing to the current very warm weather, the theme is Summer so your challenge is to make anything you like to show what Summer means to you.
Summer to me mostly means being able to enjoy all the lovely flowers in my garden together with the butterflies that we get a lot of as we have all the shrubs that they like (some of my favourites too luckily)
I've made a birthday card with flowers and butterflies for someone special (can't say who as they might just see this).
I used some pretty backing paper from the Sugar Birdies CD. The flowers are part of the extra layering flowers that come with the Funky Flower 3D card on the Paper Boutique 1 CD. The butterflies are from the All Around & Everywhere CD - a whole A4 sheet of them, ready coloured or black and white for you to colour yourself. I added heart shaped gems to the bodies for a bit of bling. I added a round greeting from the same CD to finish. A really quick and easy card to make.
You have until 12 noon on Sunday 18 July to uplaod your creations and don't forget to take a look at the lovely things made by the rest of the DT.
