C4C 346 - Picnic Connection

Good morning friends

It's Saturday and that means a new challenge at the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog.  Our hostess for July is Joanne Grzelak and the Guest Designer is Alexis Crossland-Smith Scrappin’ Sistah
Here is Joanne's challenge this week:  July is National Hot Dog Month, probably due to the number of picnics that occur at this time of year. Let’s have a picnic ‘connection’ on our cards this week.

I have had these stickers in my stash for a couple of years so this challenge was the perfect time to use them The gems fell off the stickers where the BBQ controls would be ... so I added some glitter dots instead. 

The card base is the Hanging Charm Pull Tab by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. It folds completely flat for mailing ...

... and when you pull the tab the BBQ stands up for display and reveals the stamped greeting.

Usually I make cards for specific people, but I didn't have anyone in mind when I made this card. So the back of the card was left blank and that way I can add what I want when I go to send the card.

Check out the C4C blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge. We'd sure love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C346.
