Summertime and Popsicles!

Hi! Welcome back to my blog. I'm glad you came to see what I'm up to. Today I made a card for the sketch at CAS Colors and Sketches. I found a couple of new challenges. One is a color challenge from Tuesday Throwdown. One is a German challenge called Paperminutes and they are calling for ornaments. Now here in America, when we say ornament, we usually mean something you hang on a Christmas tree. Or it can mean just something decorative. I'm not sure what it means exactly in Germany, but I'm assuming it's a doily type image, so I used a die cut doily on my card. I found this half-doily in my bits box from many years ago. I added some popsicles to my card for the "feed me" challenge at Shopping Our Stash.

I stamped the popsicles in the different colors of the color challenge and used Desert Sand for the sticks.

I got a new set of dies from Hobby Lobby, and used the celebrate die to cut out the sentiment. I mounted it on a strip of Hollyhock so you could see it.

Thanks for checking out my card and I hope you can come play with me at these fun challenges!

Materials used:
Cardstock: White Daisy, Hollyhock
Stamps: Blossom Cardmaking WOTG
Ink: Blush, Hollyhock, Petal, Sunflower, Key Lime, Glacier, Desert Sand
Other: celebrate die (not CTMH)
