Good Times Blueberry Pickin'

For some reason this card took me forever! I was really excited to use this new set from Paper Trey Ink. I ordered the coordinating die for the lid of the jar. I knew I wanted to use the dark blue, and then the ribbon looked cool with it, but it just didn't seem to come together. I did finally decide on this, though, and it looks nice. I made it for Suzanne for going blueberry picking with me last weekend. I had a great time and the blueberries are delicious! She said she's eaten so many that she's surprised she's not a Smurf, LOL! I used the new sizzix impressions folder from the SU mini catalog to make the textured background (you can see it in the close up picture). The paper, ribbon, and border punch are from SU. The little heart paper clip was on sale at Michaels the polka dot ribbon on the heart is from A Muse. I used my Copics to shade the blueberries, but now I know I need to buy some darker colors...the blueberries that we picked were HUGE and really dark blue! Lastly, the orange rhinestones are from the dollar bin at A.C. Moore. Suzanne, I know you'll probably see this before you get it, but it will probably look different in person ;) Actually, I should have made the jar almost empty to match your blueberries at home...hehehe. I really had a great time, we have to do it again! When they get peaches and apples, I want to go, too!


  1. I'll pretend I didn't see this and I will pretend I don't absolutely love it as much as the blueberries!!!!!! ;)


I am thrilled that you have come to check out my cards :) I truly love getting comments, thank you so much for writing one to me!
