Monthly Blog Hop with Mo's Dream Team - Summer Colours

Yay, it's time to hop with us over on Mo's Dream Team and this month your host is l'il ol me so I am also the start of the hop!!  
I chose the theme of  Summer Colours and when I picked that theme, I was thinking of blues and yellows for my card.  As you will see, I've gone with something entirely different - Strawberries and Cream, a great colour combo for this time of year!!
For my card, I chose Blueberry Girl, again not going with the obvious and her blueberries have become redcurrents, but you get the idea!! I'm normally ok with red colouring but it really wasn't coming out too well on her top, so I decided to do a bit of paper piecing using the Webster's Pages that I was also using for my matting and layering and have to say I'm rather pleased with her little gingham outfit.
I then used some teeny tiny pearls for the berries spilling out of her bucket.
The main sentiment is Paper Trey Ink on a Stampin Up punched mat.  The butterflies are from a new Joy Craft set, with the Watering Can and Mini Picket fence cut with a Memory Box die.  The cartwheel is a Joanna Sheen Signature die.
Well, I hope you like how my card turned out, your next stop on the hop is the fabulous Debby Y. (Full order is below)

I love how you changed up the colors from "blueberries". Such a fun card!

BeckyR71 said...

The layering is amazing! I cannot believe the detail you put into your cards. I'm always afraid of adding so many elements and dimension because I'm worried it will look like a sloppy, cluttered mess. You prove otherwise....It looks gorgeous! Thanks for sharing.
