Hello Sunshine

As our summer draws to a close, I thought this sunny card would be appropriate for today:

Polka Dot Sprig, Aug. 22

supplies: gold and black cardstock, Penny Black Indian Wheel, stamped in yellow ink on yellow cardstock, then overstamped in black and clear embossed with Polka Dot Sprig and a sentiment from Friendship, black and white gingham bow

Simple, but it kind of catches both summer and autumn!  And as I've said before, this Indian Wheel background lends itself to anything!
