Make a wish..

Good morning! It's time for some Summer Fun at Sweet Stampin' this week! It hasn't been too summery here lately, hopefully weather will improve soon!
To make my card I used a Mo Manning cutie...I just love this image, looks so like my eldest granddaughter at about 4 years old and remind me of the time that Olivia picked a huge dandelion clock, closed her eyes and sucked in a deep breath....along with a mouthful of dandelion seeds!!! I can still see the look of disgust and horror on her face now! I laughed so much it hurt...Olivia did not laugh...she still doesn't find this story funny...I still do..some children have no sense of humour :)))) I think I'll send her her this card...))
Anyway, back to the card,  I coloured the image with copics. The blue background paper is stamped and embossed with grasses and seed heads using white detail EP. I added die cut dandelions and 'wish' sentiment, and 2 punched butterflies.
There's plenty of fun and fabulous summery inspiration to be seen on the Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog, so why not hop over and take a look! Hope to see you there this week
Have a lovely weekend

Chris, that is hilarious!! Poor Olivia!! You so totally SHOULD give her this fabulous card, see if you can finally raise a smile about that memory. Hehe, so funny, poor sweetie, more than she bargained for in that dandelion encounter! LOVE how you added the embossed details, that looks so pretty! That dandelion diecut and the little butterflies are the perfect finish too. Fabulous card with such a fun story! Hugs, Wends xoxo

Fun card! And yes, grandkids are too funny. I think the story is hilarious! Maybe as she gets older, she will finally find the humour in sucking up all those seeds :) This card is so happy and fun. I love it. Thanks so much for sharing your card with us at Cardz 4 Galz. -Chris, DT
