The topic for July 2014 is "anything goes with the optional twist of Summer".
The Scribble & Scrap Shop

I have finished the card off with a die-cut sentiment, two different ribbons, die-cut shapes and butterflies, die-cut flowers with brad centres and a little bee charm which I have had for years and years.
