Summery Just Because card

Hi everyone!!  Long time no blog.  I have been super busy with end of the school year stuff and getting my garden in order.  Not too mention allergies have been kicking my behind and wiped out my energy!  Anyway, I have a fun card to share today.  This was inspired by a card I found on Pinterest.  Seriously, what did we do before Pinterest?  I love that site, not only for endless crafty inspiration, but for recipes and so much more!  But I digress...
My card uses some of my favorite cheery summer pattern paper from My Mind's Eye and matching enamel dots (I just love matchy-matchy).  I used the Blooms 3 D-Lite die for my flowers and the leaves are vellum cut from the Sprigs set (which I had left over from this card). For the chevron pattern, I used the Classic Ric Rac edger die and made 2 die cuts into my cardstock, separated them a tiny bit and adhered them over some pattern paper with foam squares.  Pretty cool, huh?!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!  Here is a close up picture of the flower details, I just love the emboss and DEbossing details with the Blooms 3 dies.
