Summer dreams

Hello and good morning!

So if you stopped by the CA&Friends blog yesterday you've already seen the card I have to share here today. If you haven't stopped by there yet, you may want to check out the fun WCW challenge that will have you longing for sunny, summer days! :)
The challenge is to create a summer time card with yellow being the primary color in the papers you use... luckily for me I had this great yellow cloud paper from Pebbles just waiting to be used. Doesn't it look like the sky on a warm summer evening? That paper was the inspiration for the whole rest of the card... especially when I also had this fun little scooter stamp that I've been wanting to pair with just the right Sprout and Summer turned out to be the one. There's something about a scooter that just says summer to me, not that I've ever ridden on one but it looks like it could be kinda fun. :)
All in all this is a pretty simple little card but the story it tells makes me happy!

Thanks for stopping by!
