Feeling free as a bird!

First day of the summer leave and I'm feeling free as a bird, so lovely to have time to read the morning paper and have another cup of coffee, life is good! And I did a bit of wandering at the Summer Sales too, a girl needs clothes too, not only crafty goods. A pretty tunic with above colours gave the inspiration for the card.

I would like to join:
CASalogy: Free!
Cute Card Thursday: Fly Like A Bird
Crafty Calendar Challenges: Things With Wings

I used:
Tim Holtz stamps and Distress inks

Have a wonderful day!
