In The Good Old Summer Time
Since summer is close, Squigglefly Challenge blog asks challenge players to make a "summertime theme card--think of the outdoors, beaches, playing, leaving school, vacations, summertime holidays. All the great things we get during the summer time."
I got to play with a brand spankin' new June release from new Squigglefly artist and crafting friend Pammie Lehto!! The digi image is called "Fancy Cup With Rose." I thought it would be perfect for the summer theme.
After coloring the image with Copics, I matted it with the same card stock I used to make the card base. I used a piece of patterned paper from my stash (of which I keep using for cards and even giving away and I don't see any progress in decreasing the amount).
I kept the embellishments simple, finding organza ribbon in a matching color as well as white. I tied one around the card front, and the other around the bottom of the tea cup. A few flowery pearl strands that I received from a friend finish off my card.
Alright, grab your suntan lotion and paper cutter and join the fun at Squigglefly Challenge Blog!!
