Here is my creation with summer theme.....
 I am a tea lover and my morning starts with a cup of Indian Masala tea:)  So, I made this very special card for a tea lover just like me!
I chose a floral PP and  did  third generation stamping in red colour for wood panel look. Then  I cut it into four panels and distressed  the edges. And adhered all the panels on a snippet of green colored wooden paper and then brown CS base. Then I added doilies and  die cut stripes. At the focal point I adhered a vellum gift holder and sprayed some golden splatters very lightly. I stamped the tea cup and a little tea bag on a watercolor sheet, colored with distress inks, Added some glossy accents and few sequins on a cup for more shine. I attached the cup with a green paper clip using pop dot. The sentiment was stamped in Black Archival ink. 
I made my own hand made Gerbera flowers using octagon die cuts, distressed them and coated a thin layer of  PVC glue mixed with diamond dust powder in water to stiffen them and give them some shine. To complete them I added brads for that elegant look!
I added a golden colored thread under the flowers and embellished with a beautiful butterfly sticker ! To top it off I put a Enjoy Sentiment sticker.
Now for the gift holder part -  I put a tea bag in the holder with a cute little spoon for a nice cup of tea to be enjoyed while sitting in their garden while looking at my card! Hehehe !!!
Hope you enjoyed this card as much as I did making it !
