Life is a Picnic with Creative Cafe' KOTM!

Hello everyone!!  Aren't you loving the inspiration this month?!!  Another amazing Creative Cafe' KOTM!!

Today I'm sharing a cute little every day/occasion card with you:

Base:  5 & 1/2" by 4 & 1/4" sky blue cardstock.  Stamp sentiment in upper left corner using Black Tuxedo Memento Ink.

First Layer:  Cut a 4&1/4" by 2&1/2" piece of picnic patterned paper, and mat on a 4&1/4" by 3&1/4" piece of swiss dot dark blue cardstock.  Cut two 4&1/4" by 1&1/2" strips of silver mirror cardstock, and glue to back of the swiss dot dark blue of above piece using Scrap Happy Glue, leaving about 1/4" showing.

Cut ant patterned paper strips (one row of ants) and trim to 4&1/4" long.....add at the edge of the blue swiss dot.  Then wrap this piece with blue ribbon and tie a bow.  Glue this piece to card front using Scrap Happy Glue (about 1/4" below sentiment).

Next stamp the picnic basket on white cardstock in Black Tuxedo Memento Ink.  Color in with markers, and fussy cut out.  Mat onto a piece of white swiss dot cardstock (2&1/2" by 2&1/4") using foam tape, and then mat on dark blue swiss dot cardstock (2&3/4" by 2&1/2") using Scrap Happy Glue.

Add a few of the ants from the Doodlebug Sprinkles stickers for a cute accent around the picnic basket:

 Thanks so much for stoppin' by today.....stop back soon for more creative ideas!!
