Happy Summer Everyone!

I am pretty sure that it would take Divine intervention to fit 1 more thing into my summer, but I am praying for that intervention to get just a little "me time" my craftroom is so lonely without me. But since we are having a challenge at Cards in Envy I did get a chance to go in for a couple of hours the other day.

Here is the sketch we started with

And here is what I came up with

I decided to make a card for a friend who is getting married and taking a trip to Europe for their honeymoon (Oh so jealous).  I used transparency paper for the window and had the view looking out over the Eiffel Tower.  The paper comes from the DCWV stack Tre' Chic, the borders are pre-made scrapbooking frames from My Mind's Eye that I cut down to fit the A2 size card and I used ribbon and buttons  from my stash to put the finishing touches.  The only thing I decided I should do differently if I try this same idea again, is that I completely forgot to leave room to write anything on the inside, to I am going to write a note to put in there, but I laughed for a few minutes when I realized what I had forgotten ;)
Take a minute to go over to Cards in Envy and see what the other fabulous Design Team members have come up with!
