June Card for the Just For Fun Challenge.

Hi Everyone,
It’s the first of the month again and time for a new challenge at the Just For Fun challenge Blog. 
This month the theme is 'Here comes Summer'. Lots of things come to mind for summer and for me the peace and tranquility of warm sunny days with blue skys, green countryside and gardens full of flowers that bring back lots of memories.
So with that in mind I created this card....

On the base card (A4 folded in half) I used blue, antique linen and green distress inks to create a  soft background and I stamped some foliage over the green . 
I cut an oval aperture in a piece of card slightly smaller than the base card to coincide with the background colouring. I thought it needed a little something so I drew some birds in the sky. I mounted the top card onto the card with foam pads.
I then added flowers from stash and used a Joy die cut for the swirly foliage .
I added some fancy peel offs for the corners to tie it all together.
I hope you like it and you get some inspiration too.
Pop over to the Just for Fun Challenge Blog and have a look at the other Design Team makes for some lovely Summer Fun cards.
From the 1st July we will be "Anything Goes" for every challenge.
Have Fun, Hugs, 
Kay. xx
