ID: 1st Day of Summer
4.5"w x 4"h

The image at left has a piece of white flower patterned lace covering the page. I thermal embossed the upper and lower edges in gold embossing powder to prevent fraying and to add a decorative touch.

The image below left is the front with the lace lifted off. I used a cream toned cardstock and did some "tole painted" flowers in coral tones. I added a quote using a green Zig marker and edged the page using a Krylon 18kt gold metal leafing pen.

Quote: Always remember this... a smile is such an easy thing to pass along the way, like a ray of summer sunshine on a somewhat gloomy day. Unknown



For the back page I covered the cardstock with a piece of lace scrapbooking paper. Added paper flowers (upper left side) and wrote my particulars in a curve just next to the flowers.
