When in doubt, just add glitter.

Hey there!
I was sat in the garden the other day and there was a rustling noise next to me.
A little mound of earth appeared.  We have a mole!
I know lots of people think of them as pests, but this little guy isn't doing anyone any harm.
It is funny though, watching my dh inspect the grass and borders every morning for new signs of activity.
What is it with men and their lawns?? :-)

Anyway - on to my card.


This is my take on Bev Buenker's fabulous Muse card. 
I followed her overall design, but opted for summer colours.

The little birdy was a last minute addition. I just thought, that corner, needed something.
I tried hard to add a butterfly, but I am about as au fait with them, as I am with flowers!

Gorgeous, Caroline, just gorgeous!! What a wonderful take on my little Muse card! Love those summery colors, and the glittery panel down the right side. And that bird is perfect in the frame's corner. Such a sweet card! Thanks for playing at Muse this week! Bev
