First I thought I’d share one of my cards that was included in the Summer Catalog:

It features the gorgeous CM264 Color Layering Tiger Lily.  I’ve teamed it up with the CG709 Tropical Foliage Bold Prints.  I love lilies, how about you?  I went with a traditional color palette:

The sentiment has been heat embossed in white.
