Summer Sun card made using the Summer Celebrations cartridge.


Hello, friends!


Today I have a card that I made using the Summer Celebrations cartridge. This card is another challenge from the Bitten By the Bug 2 blog. The challenge required that I make a beach themed project. I was going for something bright and simple. This card may have taken all of 20 minutes to make.
