Life is a Picnic-JUGS challenge, too!

Hello!  Wow! I didn't realize it has been so long since I have posted! I am so sorry about that.  Sometimes real life takes over and squeezed crafting time out, doesn't it!?  This is my card for this week's Just Us Girls challenge #253-It's TREND week and our trend is -WASHI!
Check out the blog (linked above!) for some super duper inspiration cards!
I've used My Favorite Things Life is a Picnic set for my card.  I stamped the plaid gingham background from Impression Obsession in Buckaroo Blue on Marina Mist card stock. Then I stamped More mustard on the new (SU) Honey colored cardstock. I cute both of these pieces with MFT dies so the edges have a piered and stitched look. I love, love those dies! the edges are also sponged in the ink color.
the little girl is colored with copic markers AFTER cutting her out with the matching die and stamping her in Memento Tuxedo black ink.  The 'gold' tag is raised on dimensionals.  I went to put this all together, but had to incorporate Washi tape. I didn't like the way the yellow tape looked on the blue card stock so I taped it to some rustic white card stock and attached to two stripes.
The tag is tied with some twine at the top, as you can see.
I also 'entered' this card in the Featured Stamper challenge at Splitcoast stampers for yesterday.  Katie's inspiration gave me the general layout for my card. It's a super fun challenge to particpate in 'cuz  you have an excuse to 'copy' someone else's card! It helps me get unstuck creatively!
Thanks for stopping by today!  Please joing the JUGS team this week in the challenge! You have until Thursday evening at 9:00 pm to enter your card!
