Let me share that I used the following Cheery Lynn Designs Products:
Small Angel Wing
 Small #2 Angel Wing
 Mini Fanciful Flourish
  Victorian Picket Fence
 Lace Corner Deco E
 I finally got to use two of the first dies I ever chose, the Victorian fence and the buttons for Two similar cards.
I just wanted to share a typical day during the summer, around the 4th of July .
 I used my Copic marker and airbrush compressor to paint the background.Now my base was ready to go by adding my fence with pop dot to add dimension. There is red checked ribbon threaded through the rungs.

 The greenery was added to the background along with the two butterfly shapes cut out of CTMH paper scraps.I really like how the layers look together.
 Here is a close up of the buttons and corner pieces attached to the fence...I used some twine to finish off the buttons.
The sentiments are from Unity Stamp sets in my stash.
Hope to have you come and play along with us this week...this is such an easy one.
