Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop July 2011

Hello Everyone, Welcome to the Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop!  The last two months I was unable to hop, out of town at just the right time each month, so I am happy to be back hopping again.  This month's theme is "Sending you Sunshine," so here is my attempt at what I think of in summer sunshine!

Sankari provided us with a great sketch:

I based my card on this sketch, but ended up tweaking it a little to work better for my card.

Sending You Sunshine
