DT card for OSAAT 4th July / Picnics

Well it's Sunday again, so that must mean a New challenge over at One stitch at a Time this week.  I had so much fun looking at all your entries last week,  thank you all for sharing your talent with us.

Our sponsors over at OSAAT this week are

and our very own
Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps Collab

You can also get this set for free if you spend £10 or more at the stitchy bear store.

And on to my card!

I have been lucky enough to use stitchy's digi called 'Cook off'  One of the free digi's in the collab when you spend £10 or more, Isn't it great?  It was so much fun to colour. I haven't used any backing papers for this card, just an emcbossed piece of card in the center layered with blue and rec, I have then wrapped some cross stitch thread around the to bare corners.

I have cut the image out on a nesties die, and inked around the edge with blue and red ink.  I have then coloured the image with pro markers and mounted it onto the card with foam pads.

The sentiment's I crated on my computer and cut out with the smaller nesties and inked them in the same way as the larger one.

The flowers are again my unknown flower stamp that I have coloured with Blue and red pro markers and used buttons for the centers.

Thanks for stopping by.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges Red white and blue Picnic or out door game Favourite vaccation spot or activity.

Thanks for stopping by.
