Life Is A Picnic

Good Morning, it is Shirley posting today. I have a card I made for the  #93 Summer Picnic Color challenge to share for you. We are to use Kraft, Red and White on our cards.

I really like the colors for the challenge, and I added some black to my card. I used the Graphic 45 Raining Cats and Dogs paper pad. The image is from this paper pad, and so are the little dog stamps that are in the upper corner. This pad is jammed packed with fabulous paper and images. I think it is probably my favorite pad, at this time. The black dog was die cut using the PoppyStamps Frenchy Die. I used an embossing folder to give the dog die some texture.

I used the Heartfelt Creations Botanical Wings die to cut my flowers. Using red card stock, and paper from the Graphic 45 Raining Cats and Dogs paper pad for the flowers. I lightly sponged them with black ink. I shaped the flowers using a stylus from the Paper Blossom Paper Tool Kit. Heartfelt Creations has great videos showing how to shape flowers. The large flower has a gold dew drop in the center, from the bottle of Red, Silver, and Gold Dew Drops. The smaller flowers have small gold beads in the centers.

I used the Memory Box Lavish Branch die to make the leaves on each side of my flowers. I glued them to the card with Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive. I added tiny gold beads to the center of the little flowers.

I am happy you stopped in today to see my card.  I hope you will come back again soon.

This card is ALL YOU!! Gotta love papers that show your love for dogs, and you used it to perfection, along with your sweet dog die (reminds me of Tucker!) The layers and multiple flowers and leaves look super in these colors, and the "stamps" in the corner are another great embellie for your card!

Tucker has a spot on your beautiful card! The G45 paper is so very pretty and the black/red is awesome - lovely flowers too.
