MC July - Dies - Figs

This week's challenge on Created By Hand are "Look In Look Out" or "Dies". Guess one I choose...

I absolutely love figs and Mission Figs happen to be my favorite so far. I love the rubber stamped image by Flourishes, so had to use it on the card - it's a new image for me. BIG GRIN


Then there was a color combo - a little weird for what I was doing, but I love the way it turned out. In real life it just pops off the page and the figs and ribbon flower just blend so well with the background.

It uses one of the stamps from a Quote marks friendship stamp set by Quietfire Design.
