Summer is Here at Whoopsi Daisy

Well I 'm back at last exhausted but lovely to have time with grandsons and daughter in law. I only saw my son for a few hours as he didn't get home from  his cycle ride Lands End to John o' Groats until the evening before I came home.
Enough babbling here is my card for this weeks Whoopsi Daisy challenge which is Summer is Here and it certainly seems to be. I used this lovely image from the Daisy May and Friends cd which you can find here.
I used the precoloured image and cut the card from a free cutting file from Monica's cutting files, all cut on my Silhouette portrait. The paper is a freebie from Melstampz.
