The Joy of Discovery

Coffee of the Day - Vanilla Macadamia

Happy Monday to all of you lovely folks!

What better way to begin the week than with a fun project showcasing one of Elisabeth Bell's precious images featuring these adorable children!

did you every catch fireflies as a child? did you ever watch them in awe and wonder as they lit up the evening sky? as the July 4th holiday draws ever nearer here in the USA, I thought to myself how God has provided the most beautiful natural fireworks to us each summer evening to delight our inner childlike spirit. :)

My card uses the digital image 'Fireflies', printed onto watercolor paper so I could create a fun evening sky with SU! re-inkers and watercolor brushes. glimmer mist accents create the lovely sparkle.

papers are from the Basic Grey PB & J collection, flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, ribbons & buttons are from my stash, and sentiment die is from Tim Holtz. corrugated cardboard was torn from a shipping box and then inked.

don't forget to join the Digi Bells challenge, too! :)

have a good week!

Oh Jennifer this is such a sweet summertime card. I remember catching fireflies, but I think we let them go right away, I did not want to keep them in a jar, I want to see them fly in the sky. I love all the elements of your card.
