Compose a Card with Becky Oehlers - #5

I love this challenge! My favorite colors - red with white. It takes me back to our previous home. We had so much stuff, from the red & white enamel table and chairs to the spice jars and canister set. We spent hours scouring antique shops putting together place settings for eight of vintage dishes, glasses and utensils. What fun and what memories!

Oh well, on to the challenge at hand. You can find all the info here.



This is the inspiration photo.




And this is my card. I always wanted something like this. You can see the canister in the uppermost right corner of Becky's photo. I saw that and was on my way. Hope you like it. Thanks Becky for the trip down memory lane and the fun of creating this card.

Supplies
Cardstock: white, PTI Pure Poppy & Aqua mist
Stamps: PTI Polka Dot Basics, Vintage Picnic, Flower Garden Sentiments
Ink: PTI Pure Poppy, Fresh Snow
Other: PTI Pure Poppy button, Martha Stewart Baker's Twine and edge punch, EK Success circle punch, Copics, Pebbles Chalks (for table shading), Pop Dots.

Thanks for stopping by.

This is a perfect card for the challenge! The inspiration photo reminded me of a metal picnic basket. The border punch is a wonderful detail. Top notch job!
