Yeah for Summer

Well I missed The mashup last week. It was a crazy week and by the time I had my card ready, the challenge was closed. But I'm not going to miss challenge 11, that's for sure. Lisa's right about summer being short. I'm at the other end of her snow belt. Winter here are long and cold too. So I'm out side a lot these days. Just soaking in that awesome sun.
This week the challenge is a summer theme mashed up with polka dots. Don't you love that bikini top.  
I choose So Saffron for my card base and added Wild Wasabi and Perfect Plum. The stamp sets is A Flower For Every Season and Polka Dots and Petals. I don't remember the name of sentiment stamp. It was a fun card to make and went together really easy.
