Indian Summer

Indian Summer by Emily Dickinson

These are the days when birds come back,
A very few, a bird or two,
To take a backward look.

These are the days when skies put on
The old, old sophistries of June, --
A blue and gold mistake.

Oh, fraud that cannot cheat the bee,
Almost thy plausibility
Induces my belief,

Till ranks of seeds their witness bear,
And softly through the altered air
Hurries a timid leaf!

Oh, sacrament of summer days,
Oh, last communion in the haze,
Permit a child to join,

Thy sacred emblems to partake,
Thy consecrated bread to break,
Taste thine immortal wine!

Love this poem... it inspired this card. It's a simple card to make...

  1. make card from cardstock and cover face of card with patterned paper
  2. adhere band of coordinating cardstock to face of card
  3. ink edges with ink & foam blender
  4. apply pearl flourishes 
  5. adhere flowers
That is it for today... I love how Zva's bling and flowers make a simple card stunning. Thanks for stopping by today!
