The sweetest flower


This is my card for today's SCS challenge. We were challenged to make a tall card with a discontinued SU set. I love the "art of life" set and will continue to use it. It has such a nice elegance about it. I cut strips of white cs and stamped the background on it, then distressed the edges to look like an old fence. The clouds were made using A Muse scallop stamp and I dirtied up the card using Tim Holtz (vintage photo) distress ink. The sentiment is from Papertrey.

Longing for those beautiful summer days, we've seen a lot of rain here in June!
