Dog Days of Summer

Retro Rubber has a picture for inspiration for the current challenge. I made this card for a dear friend who’s turning 80 soon. All stamp sets are by Gina K Designs and are all older than 1 year. The pitcher is from Stately Flowers 9 (2015). The flowers are from Daisy Delight (2017) Birthday Blessings is from Beyond Baskets (2012) 80 is from For the Grad (2019) and was just about the perfect size to go with the rest of the sentiment. The daisies were colored with Copics YR02, YR04, YR07, Y02, Y08. The card base is Lemon Yellow. The gingham is from my stash, matted with Sweet Mango. I’m also entering this in the Color Hues challenge. The current challenge is to use Yellow and Orange. They are celebrating their first anniversary.
