Life is a Picnic!


This set, Life is a Picnic, is undoubtedly my FAVORITE set of all of the current Our Craft Lounge releases. So much FUN to color, and absolutely made for Copics!  Hey, even when Life isn't a picnic, these cute images and sayings will certainly make you feel better!  Best of all, you can order them now from i {heart} papers!  :)

I was looking at that cool slice of juicy watermelon and decided that my entire card needed to be just that...one big slice of delicious watermelon yumminess!  LOVE these Basic Grey colors.  The pink is from Green at Heart, and the green is from Kioshi. A few black rhinestone seeds and a big gingham bow are the only embellishments that this simple layout needed.  They let this adorable image speak for itself!

I don't normally squeal when I finish a card, but I sure did when I finished this one!  I love it when a clean design practically puts itself together the way this one did.  How could you not smile when you open a card like that?  It's just happy!
