Paper Sweeties Challenge - June 2017

 Hello friends and happy June!  We are starting our 6th month of 2017 and summer is coming our way very soon!  And since it is the start of a new month it is also time for a brand new monthly challenge at Paper Sweeties!

  I love this sweet scene with the cherries and gingham and mason jar and it inspired this card:

I started by creating a fun watercolor background using the ink smooshing technique on some watercolor cardstock.  I used the lovely Mason Jar stamps and sweet cuts to create my mason jar.
I chose some sweet cherry themed paper to match the inspiration photo to paper piece the label and topper. The pink gingham tag was die cut using the "Beautiful Little Wishes" sweet cuts and the sentiment is from the "Handmade for you" stamp set. To finish the card I added a felt doily in pink and wrapped it from the front of the card to the back over a 1/2 circle of the same cherry themed paper.  The final touch is the sentiment "Thanks ever so much" from the "Love you to pieces" stamp set.

I hope you will join today's challenge blog hop to see all of the wonderful inspiration from the entire team:
