Life's Adorable!

Hello Beauties,

Are you enjoying the Tuesday evening?? Here in Ct its hot and humid..phew!! So, to cool off some heat, I come up with a quickie card and a quickie post. This is for CAS-tastic Challenge. This week's challenge is 'Inspired by Summer'. And I am just squeezing in my entry on time at the last minute..lolzz

Here's my card:
Somehow, I am not able to click a picture that does justice to the card. [Can please someone advice me how to capture a card beautifully :(]
Another look, a closer one :) :
And I have done some fiddling with a cute ant stamp on inside of the card too.
It says, life is adorable but I think the stamp in itself is adorable. I stamped the image on cream cardstock. The side poles are made from toothpicks, tied 2 of them with a thread for each side. The cloth string is also made from bunch of thread, rolled together to form a thicker string. It is tied to the side poles. For the greener ground, I cut out a form sheet and punch it for the flower-bed. Sentiment "Life is" hand-written and "Adorable" is stamped. And lastly made small small clouds over the top.
For the inside of the card. I stamped this cute little ant stamp (got it for some cents :D) several times over the edge.

Recipe for this card:
Paper - cardstock in creme from Potpourri and form sheet in green
Stamps - clear stamp from Brenda Walton (kiddie cloths and sentiment), rubber stamp of little ant from The Little Classic
Inks - from Petal Point in green, mauve and blue; Martha Stewart in coal
Punch - border punches from McGill

Thanks for stopping by. I {heart} your wonderful love.
