For my IG Hop card I selected Polka Dot Orchard's Joy of God's Love.

To make this card, I sized the image and sentiment ~ 4" square to fit a 5 1/2" square card base.   After printing on Neenah 110# card stock, I used my Copic markers for coloring.  

I have a Lang calendar that was a gift from my brother and sister-in-law.  I used the June rose from the calendar as inspiration for my color selections.

Next, I selected the coordinating yellow and pink papers.  I used Whimsy's Notched Stitched Nesting Square dies to cut the image and mats.   I also cut the card base, carefully putting the top cut line slight above the fold of the card base.    After adhering the layers, I added three enamel dots to complete the card. 

Thank you for stopping by today.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not JustScraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards and other crafting items.

I’ll be entering this card in the following challenges:
