This fortnight we have this gorgeous inspiration picture from Di:

14 Jul - Challenge 75 - Di

The colours to use this week are cream, aqua and pale pink. I apologise in advance again if my photo hasn't come out the best. My laptop is in the shop for repairs and the graphics on my old desktop computer aren't the best - very dark and grainy, so when I go to edit my pics, I can't be sure how they really look on a decent computer.  Anyway, here's my card:

I used some Thrift Shop paper by October Afternoon and matted this on Aqua Mist cardstock, sewing the two layers together. I cut another smaller strip of Aqua Mist which I edged with my Fleur De Lis border punch. I then stamped a background image from Background Basics: Botanicals on some cream card in Baja Breeze ink and adhered this to the small Aqua Mist layer.

My image is from Vintage Picnic and I paper pieced some more of the Thrift Shop paper on the basket, colouring the rest with Copics. I then stamped the pink cloth image onto Sweet Blush cardstock and adhered this to the basket. Once I matted this layer onto a small Aqua Mist layer, I used my slot punch to punch out a small hole in the top and then I thread through some Vanilla seam binding.

The sentiment, also from Vintage Picnic was stamped in Baja Breeze ink and cut into a banner with some pink rhinestones added to each end. Finallly all the layers were added to some Very Vanilla cardstock.

The inside uses a sentiment form Inside & Out: Birthday, stamped in Baja Breeze ink and then I added a small strawberry image from Vintage Picnic which was coloured in with my Copics.
