CCT Ch 71 & Stamp with Fun Ch 18

Afternoon all, this is a Magnolia DT card and tag set that are on their way to Sweden as we speak. For them I have used four stamps from the Lazy Summer Days Collection and they are now available to be purchased as single stamps.

I'm going to enter this card in Cute Card Thursday Challenge 71 where the theme is "Let's get fruity" and I have also followed the fabulous sketch from Stamp with Fun Challenge 18.

I decided to make a simple matching tag for a bit of fun. I cut out tilda, coloured her with distress inks, sat her on some ribbon and raised her up on foam pads for a bit of dimension.

For my card, the base and DP all came in my Magnolia DT kit. For the main image, firstly I stamped tilda, then masked her and stamped the strawberry image to make it look like she is sitting on the strawberry. I also stamped the beach flowers, cut them out and raised them up on foam pads for my embellishments. All my images are coloured with distress inks and for the sentiment I used whispers pens to ink up the stamp.
