Freaky Summer Swap Card

Good Monday morning, Friends! And, WOW! We are at the last week of April?! How did this happen? I hope that you all had a wonderful Easter! I know we did! We spent Friday and Saturday in Denver. Friday we went to a Rapids game and that was exciting! Then Saturday, the boys had a soccer game of their own. And they won!! 2-1!! It was FREEZING cold there and the wind was blowing but they hung in there! The drive home was rainy and snowy. And it has rained here at home ever since! I think it is supposed to rain today and tomorrow - off and on. But you know what they say... April showers bring May flowers! 

Today's card is one that I did for a recent swap I was in. The swap was to use Summer mini catalog items and so I picked the Fabulous Florets! I love this set! I also wanted to use the new Beyond the Garden designer paper. I had seen this really cool idea to make a "ruffle" using paper. I just accordion folded the paper and glued it down with a lot of glue dots! The ribbon also helps hold it down. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
