H2H Challenges: Life's a Picnic

For the month of July, Heart 2 Heart Challenges will be hosting a fun "Life is..." series.  The first installment is the theme, Life's a Picnic.  I had planned to scrapbook our Fourth of July cookout photos, but I was having so much fun I didn't think to take many!  So, one thought led to another, and I made this card instead.
What do you mean, you don't see the picnic theme?!?  You know, picnics... sunny days... sunshine...

This card was super easy to make because it is a cut on the CTMH/Cricut Artfully Sent cartridge.  I wanted to use one of our pretty yellows, and decided this floral pattern from the Brushed paper pack would be fun.  I lined the inside of the card with Canary card stock and then added a strip of Sorbet  to highlight "Hello" and two strips of pink shimmer trim for the sunshine portion.
To finish off the card, I added pennants from Sorbet card stock and pink and gold shimmer trim, plus two gold sequins.  I love the addition of Sorbet to this paper's original color palette to mimic shades of a sunrise or sunset.
Do not adjust your monitor: this picture is blurry, but I am using it anyway because I wanted you to see how I line the inside of these Artfully Sent cards.  Since the Brushed paper has designs on both sides, the Canary card stock makes the card more durable, gives me space to write my message, and serves as part of the cover design decoration.

Thanks for checking out my "Life's a Picnic" card.  Be sure to see what our all new Heart 2 Heart Team Cashmere has created for you this week!
