Midsummer is so special!

The new challenge at Hero Arts has a "Summer Fun" theme and being Swedish the highlight of summer is to celebrate midsummer with dancing around the midsummer pole with flower wreaths in our hair so decided to make a card for our Midsummer hosts this year; Eva and Martin - Thanks for a wonderful time!




For my card I used stamps from; Japaneese garden, Dancing with flowers, Sew special, Layered Flowers and my favorite bg stamp - the Flowerdot background.

Challenges:
Stamps & Fun = Creativity  - Summer
Craft a Scene  In the Garden

Sentimental SundaysBINGO* (pearls, flowers, stamps)
Totally PapercraftsHere Comes Summer
Paper Crafting Journey - Summer
Cute Card Thursday - Gardener's world

Hope you are having a wonderful summer!
Hugs, Karin

A really pretty card Karin, the Hero stamp looks great against the subtly DP and the flower garland compliments it perfectly.
