In The Summertime With Polka Doodles

Hello again and I'm wondering if any of you are now singing as I don't know about you but I can remember a certain song that usually gets played in the summer - showing my age I know!
This week the Polka Doodles challenge theme has been chosen by Asha and she would like to see a Summer Birthday Card
I always think of flowers when I think of summer so I've made a shaped card for my inspiration and I hope you like it.

I made the card from a single 8x8 card blank by cutting it into 2 squares. I folded one square in half to make the card base and die cutting a large circular scallop shape from the other.
I printed out the floral border from the Sugarplum Daisy CD on to cream card and die cut it into a circle. I inked the edges and added it to the scalloped circle.
I covered the base with a leftover piece of green paper from the same CD and then attached the scalloped front.
I printed out some butterflies from the CD, coloured them with Promarkers and cut them out.
I also printed out the cute image from the new Fredericka CD and coloured her with Promarkers, adding detail with Prismacolor pencils then cut her out.
I assembled the card as you see adding some flowers and a sentiment left over from my sample making session when the Sugarplum Daisy CD.

Have a great day and a lovely weekend.
Hugs, Fliss xx
