Summer Lovin'

I'm trying to summon back some summery weather with today's card...made yesterday while the winds were blowing the hail and rain against the windows! lol
I've used an image from the 'Hugs' set by Penny Black...and the papers are from the 'Quite Contrary' freebie pad by My Mind's Eye...I distressed all of the edges, and added some faux stitching with my CutterBee bug and a white gel pen. The sentiment stamp is form the CCSR set by Papermania, and the ribbon and flowers are from Poppicrafts.
