Hope you’ve been enjoying all of the new releases at Your Next Stamp! Since it’s a new month, that means it’s time for a new Tasty Tuesday challenge! I chose one of  YNS‘s brand new Darling Divas, “Summer,” for my card:
Supplies: patterned paper (“Corinne” 6×6 paper pad – SEI), metal dies (Insta Love Die Set,” “Fishtail/Banner Die Set,”  – Your Next Stamp), image stamp (Summer” – Your Next Stamp), sentiment & heart stamps (Insta Love” – Your Next Stamp), assorted Copic markers, ink (Memento Rich Cocoa), button, twine (Trendy Twine).
Here is our tasty inspiration photo for this month! 
I was inspired by the colors on the cookies and the details on the top left one.
