Dot to Dot on a Summer-like Card

Happy Saturday!
I love weekends, with plenty of time doing what I like most;
coloring and card making :)
I´ve even planned a little bit of tidying and sorting my stash…

Well, first I´ll show a card I just made.
The image is the lovely Dot to Dot, another My Besties from Sherri Baldy.
You can find lots of her images here, if you like them.
I think I tried out most all the new dies I bought this summer on the card.
(I still have some dies left on my ever-growing-longer wish list…)
The butterflies and the flower are the only things glittered on this card.
…well, the shabby white embossing enamel has gold glitter, but not so much, and it adds such a lovely touch together with the chunky white embossing enamel. I´ve used those two around the image - super cute!

Here´s the inside, with a stamped birthday greeting:

Front and back of the card:
