Cricut wildcard/walk in my garden/PTI Summer Card

Hello everyone, I hope you are having a good weekend. I've been playing around with a card for the current Passion for Papertrey challenge which is on a summer theme. I'm not really a beach person so summer for me is characterised by visiting gardens and summer fetes, so I thought I would try a card about that. Wow, I found it hard. I started by using pale blue and green chalks to create a landscape and then I wanted to make some bunting. I found a Christmas tree stamp that used a simple dotted triangle so I stamped lots of them in PTI inks and then cut them out and glued them to some ribbon.

I needed some wooden posts to hang the bunting from so I turned to my Cricut and cut two branch shapes from the Wild Card cartridge. I then wanted to make a sign for the Garden Fete so I cut one from the Walk in my Garden cartridge and distressed it a little. It needed a sun to show it was a summer day but as I didn't have one, I used a flower from Beautiful Blooms stamped onto summer sunshine card stock and added a vintage button. I perched a bird on the signpost but he looked a little lonely so I added a friend. I still think it needs a little something else but I can't think what, so it will have to do. I think this card may fit into another challenge too.



Enjoy the rest of the weekend and as always, I would very much appreciate it if you feel like leaving me a comment.
