Keep Calm and Enjoy Summer - Magnolia-Licious Challenge - Animal or Accessory Only

Woo have I got a cute card for you today!
It is time for Team B to share their creations at the Magnolia-Licious Challenge and it was a challenge this time as we DIDN'T want to see Tilda or Edwin, just Animals or Accessory stamps!
Now Diana stocks tons of those stamps at the Magnolia-Licious Store and over the years I have collected quite a selection :)
The store has had a facelift, we all get to that certain age ;), and if you haven't seen it yet you will be stunned, just fabulous for everyone so RUN OVER THERE NOW to check it out in all its glory!


Challenges:
Di's Digis - Punches or Dies (3 entries only)
Crazy Challenge - Punches/Dies (4 entries only)
Whoopsi Daisy - 2 or More Dies

Card Recipe:
Image - Shelf with Kitchen Towels and Picnic Basket
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper and Sentiment- Summer Fresh by Simple Stories
Doily Die - English Tea Party By Cheery Lynn Designs
Banner Die - Magnolia Doo Hickey Die Club Vol 1
Flower Die - Flower #5 by Ellentina
Brads - Unknown
Twine - DL Art




Now if you look closely at the original stamp you will see the edge of the shelf is flat against the wall



But as I wanted the basket to sit on it and the basket was more 3 dimensional I had to draw in a little extra wood after stamping to make it work and not have the basket "floating" I also added some stripes on the spotted paper to give the illusion of maybe a wall treatment.
I added the banner to the card as I thought the towels looked a little like banners on the shelf too!




I really had lots of fun with this card, the homespun feel of the papers and the thought of Summer picnics just make me smile and I hope they make you smile too!
