Inspired By...#119

Welcome to this week's Inspired By Challenge.  With Canada Day coming up on July 1st I was inspired by red this week.

How will you be inspired?  vintage, checks, gingham, colors, kitchen...

I went with the vintage feel and the colors and patterns to create this fun thank you card.  Now I am all ready for anyone who hosts a Canada Day party!  I used the Americana and Basics collections by Pebbles, along with some Papertrey Ink stamps and dies.  The lace edge on the 'tablecloth' is from an old hankie.  In order to paper piece the jar and strawberries, I used my Xyron 150.  To hold the straw and clip in place I used some of my Xyron Adhesive dots and finally, for the large pieces, a strip from my Xyron Mega Runner before sewing.

I can't wait to see what you create!
