When I seen this challenge over at the Just Magnolia Monthly Challenge blog I had to try it out! I have been wanting to do this for awhile so this was the perfect chance.
Plus, the prize is $50 to spend at Simon Says Stamp!!! WOW that is some prize! I just hope it is ok to mix with other challenges!! (lol) First I went with the summer theme for the Roses on Paper challenge of "Summer and Vacation". Then for the front of the card I have used the gorgeous sketch from Double Dutch. I have used rub-ons for the swirls and the sentiment is from Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps.
On the inside of the card on the left side I have used buttons for the challenge at Just Magnolia. The sentiment stamp is Magnolia and the strawberry is from Whiff of Joy's summer kit.I just adore this image!! Love her cap and her big flower! I left it white to resemble a strawberry flower. I highlighted it with my gel pen to make some contrast.
When I seen this last image I just pictured my kids laying in the grass so I put her with some Poppies. For the top part I wanted to use the big strawberry to go with the sentiment (again SNSS) so I stamped in it gray so it would be lighter and then stamped the sentiment in black. I left a little space under for my girls to write a small message.
When my niece was here visiting all she wanted to do was stamp out images and color so I made this for her. I told her I would stamp a bunch for her to take home but we all forgot until she was leaving. The back part of the card is the top part of the bag(that opens) so I made a little bag with a topper and filled it with images to send on to her. Well I just hope after all this work she likes it!! (LOL)
