 I think the new Bohemian Bazaar collection from Graphic 45 certainly fits the theme of Summer Colors! I cut the circle base from the IO Circle Shaker Die and ran it through a CB Folder to add some embossing. I added the printed chipboard circle and then used the IO Fancy Butterfly Die in the center of it, popping it with Dimensional silicone to keep the wings curved. I cut the solid butterfly out of yellow for the bottom layer. For the fancy butterfly I positioned the die cut evenly over a flower in the printed paper... that way the colors and the design are some what symmetrical.

A border die and left over paper strips accent the inside of the card.

I added the Summer Strip along the bottom to fit with the challenge. There is a great Summer Themed Clear Set that has some great sentiments for fun summery cards or layouts!
