2 T-shirt inspirations & BasicGrey "June Bug" revisited


I think these chocolate chip shirts with pink, aqua, and lime green are so inspiring. I love the fab funky flower and the cute birds. No doubt you were so distracted by the unparalleled beauty of these two girls that you did not notice the shirts ;)
I actually cleaned up these BG June Bug papers on Tuesday after making the card I posted yesterday. When I flipped through the collection, I recalled this particular quilt pattern...I thought it is such a busy pattern and I wouldn't know what to do with it. I think my subconscious worked on it, because when I woke up this morning, I had this sketch in my head. (I made a card like it for my dh last year.)

Like my previous card, I used a BG Pops (3D sticker) layered on a scrap of white Bazzill card stock cut with Nesties Labels 1. I hand cut the blue Bazzill layer. The 2 layered squares behind are cut at 2", 2 1/8", and 2 1/4". The base card is DCWV (4 1/4" x 5 1/2").

The only other time I have used this particular collection was last August for my Flopsey in the tub and Hey, Chick card.
