Mid summer colours of Red, Green and White/Cream

Hi everybody

This is the last week of our June and Associated events at  Make My Monday,  and Jacqueline has chosen a colour theme for this week, Red, Green and White/Cream - Strawberries and Cream if you like - think Wimbledon which starts today!

For this card I have used a fabulous Stampin' Up set which I bought on that well-known auction site.  I have mixed the red inks, but the predominant one is DI Barn Door, and then dabbed over with other reds.  Strange how the top flower looks a lot darker when in real life it looks the same as the others.  The sentiment is from the same set and inked with a DI marker.  The edge of card is inked in the same green.  The layering card is Tim Holtz, and the corner die cut is Cherry Lynn.

i am entering this into the following challenges:

Clearly Inspired - Red, White and Green
Charisma Cardz - Here comes summer
Cute card Thrusday - here comes summer

I really appreciate it that you take the time to look at my blog and leave such lovely comments. Thank you each and every one of you. Hugs,

  10. Hi Val, I'm pinching a few minutes from h......k time to catch up a bit. The 'Mamma Day Care' duties are severely eating into my spare time ............ read that as 'I have none at the moment', lol!

    I'm looking back at all your cards which are gorgeous but had to comment on this stunner. It's very chic and sophisticated. Love the colours and that flower image is fabulous.

    Hope you are well.
