Summer Mini Catalog – Sneak Peek Day 3

Well I made it today by the skin of my teeth! It’s 11:28 and I’ve just now finished making a card for Day 3 of sneak peek week!

So tomorrow’s post should be much earlier (although I do need to do some housework!). Anyway, on to the card.

There is an adorable tiny squirrel in the set, too that I’m dying to use, but he didn’t fit on the plant… he was just a tad too big. Anyway, I digress. The background is a brand new textured embossing folder called square lattice and I think I’m in love (wink, wink). It adds such great texture to a card that I didn’t want to cover any of it up — hence the concentration of items in the center of the card — including
