MFTeasers-Day Four!



Happy 4th of July!!!

Today is a wonderful day to celebrate with family and friends and maybe have  a little picnic in the park, so I decided to showcase the picnic basket image from the new Inspired By Summer set from MFT.

I kept the layout on this card super simple, frankly, because every embellishment I tried to add really just detracted from the cute little scene. Sometimes less really is more! LOL!! The plaid paper is from the Doodlebug Nifty Notions collection. I used my sunshine die-namic to cut out the sun from Lemon Drop cardstock and added some tiny white clouds using the new You Move Me die-namics.

On the inside I stamped the tree image from Inspired by Summer and added the sentiment in black ink.

Here are the details about the upcoming release on July 5 at 10 PM EST:
