I Brake for Stamps-Summer Fun!

Hello! The I Brake for Stamps has another challenge going on right now! You can find all the details here at the I Brake for Challenges Blog! This is my sample card for the challenge!

Summer fun to me means gardening! Often I wish I had vegetables, but mine is generally flower gardening. I think it fits in with cardmaking because I love all the colors in my flower beds! I'm not a rose gardener though-that was my dad. He loved is roses and we have many pictures that he took of his beloved blooms! Back in the sixties he took movies of everything so we even have movies of his roses! Not a lot of action there! Thankfully, he took movies of us too! Close up of this gorgeous group of roses!

I stamped the image twice and cut out the ones that I wanted to pop forward and raised them with dimensional pieces in the center. Then I glued the edges to the main piece.

The roses are R81, 83 and 85. The leaves are G20, 40 and 24. the basket is Y21 and YR24 with a touch of E99 on the edges.

I used the Splitcoast sketch from last week for my layout.

Wishing you a fabulous Thursday! Please consider joining in on our Summer fun challenge! You don't have to use an IBFS image (But we'd love if you did). Everyone is eligible for the prize. We'd just like to ask that you mention the challenge and link your card post to our blog, please!

Thanks much! Cheryl
