Serendipity Large Oval Months June

In May of this year, I decided to feature a card using the Serendipity Stamps large oval month on the first of every month until I work my way through the entire set of twelve.  At the end in April of 2013 I will give away the set of hand made cards to one random commenter. 

I love how each month is highlighted with little images circling each month to draw attention to why it is so special.  For example, June has a beautiful bounty of flowers. July has a flag, watermelon and fireworks, October has a cornucopia of fall's bounty, and December cookies and evergreen.

This would be a great set for a home crafted calendar or a birthday card for a friend who celebrates theirs in that particular month.  I would dress it up with a pretty monogram and perhaps their date of birth. 

For June I wanted to capture the abundance of flowers you can expect from a beautiful summer day.  As a nod to the weddings in June I threw in a spray of pearls and a fancy vintage cream doily. I sprinkled the flowers with gems and colored in the images with Copic markers.  Here are a few close ups:
Thanks for having a look - I hope you have a beautiful weekend!

These colors sure scream June to me! Stunning card Jeanne! I love all the beautiful flowers you added to June beauty. I love the red die you placed the stamped image on, so fancy. How fun would that be to win all 12, I don't think I could part with them if I made them. Thanks for a chance to win.
