Fabulous DT ideas.

Awesome inspiration from the DT and the photo. My colors may be darker than what is shown in the picture; but I feel all of these colors with the fairy and the butterflies are images for a fresh summer breeze. It isn't about the colors. It is what you feel when you look at something. Have a fabulous day! Hugs, Gloria

This was sooooo much fun!!!! You not only gave me inspiration for a card but to also make a new paper pack going off of those colors. I hope you like my card. I loved your DT's cards:) Thanks so much for the challenge. Glad I found you:)
