Cottage Splendor

Happy Tuesday,

I hope that the weather is cheery where you are because it's been cold and wet here in London, Ontario. I know the rain is good for the flowers, but we need more warm weather. At least this card makes me think warm summery thoughts. I love how Cottage Wall coordinates with Cottage Garden. I recently received Cottage Wall from my clearance rack order from Stampin Up! and I couldn't wait to use it. It's a bonus that it uses one of my favourite colours - Rich Razzleberry. I don't think I'll ever tire of this DSP or stamp set. For this card I am doing another card challenge. I'm back at The Paper Players for the challenge. I just love the clean lines of this sketch.

Here's the sketch:

Here's my card:
