June Trendy Twine

*** EDITED ***


*********************************************************************************


Finally the sun begins to shines after days of raining.  Where has the summer gone to?

I am using pink washi tape for today's card for both side of borders and on the butterfly which is taped on a white cardstock and die cut.  The sentiment is from PB which is white heat embossed on a vellum and I decorated it with knotted twine.

This card enters into the following challenges :

Thank you for your lovely comments.

Hello Lai-Yoke
Happy, sweet Pink, vivid and energetic, and creating a feeling of movement and wild abandon, your card is fun and exciting, and demands attention, your choice of patterned paper, and your embossing for texture, works extremely well to make a truly beautiful card.
