Do you ever feel..

.. like adding a sentiment might mess up your card?

I just couldn't get one to work with this card this morning. Maybe after I stare at it for a while something will come to me but I like it just fine without.

There is the most adorable patch of wild brown-eyed susans growing in the ditch by our driveway. Jason saved them when he was trimming yesterday. I saw them while I was mowing (OMG the grass was so tall after all of that rain) and immediately thought of Floral Frenzy. The polkadotty kind of center in that set reminds me of the centers of the brown-eyed susans. So here is the little bunch of flowers. I added a couple of butterflies, inked with Lemon Tart and then kissed to the flower center that was inked with Summer Sunrise. Gave them a cute pattern that matched the flower centers. Had never done that technique before and not sure I did it correctly but hey whatever. I like it.
