Life is a Picnic – Summer Lovin’ Recipe Swap

My card includes the ultimate Summer activity… picnics!

I guess you could say I was definitely in a picnic-mood when I made this card because I just came from a wonderful family reunion this past weekend!  We had such a great time!
My card uses the new Birdie Brown stamp set from My Favorite Things called BB Every Day is a Picnic.  What’s fun about this set is it also comes with matching Die-Namics dies, so you can cut out all those fun images… no more fussy cutting!  I cut out all my images and colored with Copics on Copic X-press It Blending Card stock.  On the center Razzle Berry cardstock panel I stamped the BG Gingham background with Cotton Candy premium dye ink, and on the Sour Apple cardstock base I stamped the BG Grid background with Grout Gray hybrid ink.  The layout for my card was inspired by the sketch this week at the Paper Players challenge #201.
I added a sentiment from the stamp set, and a few other fun items on the inside…
