Summer Buds:

Every now and then, I come up with a card that absolutely blows me away with how beautiful it is. Today, I created this card for a swap with other demonstrators in my area and wasn't overly happy with the outcome. Don't get me wrong, the card was nice, but, as you all know, when swapping with others, I really try to achieve that WOW effect. No longer inspired, I placed it on the kitchen bench and went into town to watch my children ride their new bikes.
When I returned after 6pm, the sun was brilliantly shining through my kitchen window settling on this card I'd made earlier. I was aghast to find the sun in all it's glory had set afire the bronze embossing on this card turning it from 'satisfactory' to spectacular. I hope the other demonstrators like it as much as I do and take the time to view it in it's best sunsetting light.

To everyone who reads this blog and were not a part of the local SU swap this card looks great on the computer, but it is even better in real life.

Nerine, I don't own Copper EP, but that is now going on my next order.
Thanks for creating a beautiful card.
Kind regards
