Dog Days of Summer

I've been busy with my part-time job the past few days - putting together an annual Book of Reports so haven't had much chance for creating cards. I'm kind on on a holding pattern right now though, waiting for some more reports to be turned in so this morning I managed to find time to create a card for Retro Red Rubber's current challenge - Dog Days of Summer

I used the Technique Tuesday (Greenhouse Society) Sunny Flowers stamp set to make my card. I'm not sure how old this stamp set is, but can see it in use here on my blog back in November of 2018, so I've had it at least that long. 

There's a touch of red in the inspiration photo (one of the flowers) so I added a small red ladybug brad to my card.

I also added a piece of seam binding at an angle to represent the angle of the wooden platform in the inspiration photo.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Stamp/Die: Technique Tuesday Sunny Flowers stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copic Markers

Papers: Neenah 110# White and SU Wild Wasabi CS and DP from my scrap file

Dies: MFT Stitched Rectangle and Paper Roses Stitched Circle

Embellishments: Eyelet Outlet Mini Ladybug Brad and Seam Binding from an unknown vendor
