Summer Evenings

Here in the Pacific NW, we don't always have warm evenings in the summer.  But this summer we are enjoying evening after evening outside.  In fact, there have been many nights that I run the fan during the night in order to have our bedroom cool enough for sleep.
Die Cut Diva's have a new challenge starting today - hot August nights.   Many of you in different parts of the country can relate.  How would you interpret this challenge?  I chose to use a digital image by Doodle Pantry.  I wish I had a porch swing.  I think it would be a wonderful way to cool off on a hot summer night.

The wood frame is Doodle Pantry digital paper cut out with Spellbinder dies and my Cuttlebug.
The flowers in the planter are dabbed with liquid pearls.  The flowers in the left corner are recycled with some pink ink distressing the edges.  I also fussy cut some of the leaves and popped them on top the leaves on the tree.
So are you experiencing hot August nights?  Come over to Die Cut Divas to play the challenge.  Oozak is the sponsor.

  1. Beautiful Marsha. Love the ribbon treatment.

  2. It's beautiful Marsh! We have sultry summer evenings. Unless you have a screened porch you will be carried off by the huge mosquitoes. Once Fall sets in...we love sitting on the front porch like in your beautiful card and enjoy the evenings.

  3. Gorgeous card..thanks for joining us at Sister Act Card Challenge..Sue DT x

  4. We have to keep the air conditioning on night and day.... hot and humid. In winter, snow to the roof. The card is exquisite. The flowers and ribbon match the image. Thank you for sharing your wonderful art with us today.
    Blessings, Carole, Word Art Wednesday
