Ah . . . Sweet Summer

Hi there,
Happy Canada Day to all my fellow Canadians and Happy Independence Day on Monday to all the Americans out there. I hope you all enjoy the long weekend.

I did today's card with a couple of card challenges in mind. Once I saw the Color Throwdown colour challenge I knew I wanted to particpate. It uses Cameo Coral, Pacific Point and Garden Green. It was the Cameo Coral that grabbed my attention the most. It is such a pretty colour and I don't use it often enough. Next I wanted to use the sketch from Create with Connie and Mary.

Create Sketches Landscape-012

Here's my take on the challenges:

Here are the details:

CS: Cameo Coral (retired), Garden Green, Whisper White
DSP: Raspberry Tart (retired)
Stamp Set: Sweet Summer
Ink: Cameo Coral, Pacific Point, Garden Green
Embellishments: Pretties Kit (retired)
Tools: Scallop Edge Border Punch

Thanks for stopping by,
