Summer Lovin!

With summer in full swing, and no one wanting to give up the sun since it took so long for us to get it here. So many blogs are running summer challenges. Here is a card I made for many challenges. See the bottom of this post for all the fun challenges I have entered this in.
 Wow I used so many different types of products for this card. the card base is from Wild Cards I had an extra cut laying around so might as well put it to good use. I cut a black circle with my Creative Memories circle cutter embossed with the Cuttlebug.
I cut summer off the life's a Beach cartridge and I cut off the toucan bird so there was just the word summer. I used my Slice (don't use that often) and cut the word Fun and placed it in front of some ribbon I folded along the bottom. The star flowers are a punch I had laying around.
The rosette I made from a couple different punches and paper. The small rosettes I used a scalloped Martha Stewart punch and cut it then rolled it up hot glued them to a punch I didn't cut up and embossed the scallop with my cuttlebug and then placed a button in the middle. I cut a couple strips accordian folded and made the rosette and hot glued the scallop with the rolled rosettes.

I love the color combo on this it really does make the whole card pop. Not sure what I would use the card for I am sure I will think of something.

this card entered in the following challenges:
