Papertrey Ink July Blog Hop

I have a card to share for today's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.
 

 This month's challenge was to use this photo as inspiration:


Isn't it lovely?
Here's my card:


 I started by stamping my berries and leaves (from PTI's Summer Berries) with some masking
in Altenew inks: Morning Frost, Evening Grey, Arctic and Caribbean Blue. 
Then, I diecut my stamped panel using my Shaker Shapes: Square die.
I also diecut the same shape from a coaster, stacked them together,
and adhered them back with my card.


I stamped the sentiment (from Choose Joy) and added a stamped/diecut berry
with some dimensional adhesive.

Thanks for looking!

Such a clever way to do your stamping and die cutting! A very pretty card and those berry stamps and dies made it to my house yesterday afternoon. Now I'm going to have to play sooner than I had planned because your card is so pretty!
