Citrus Summer

Hello Readers,

For today I am playing along with Freshly Made Sketches, Hand Stamped Sentiments, and Just Add Ink.  All were integral to create the card I have for you today, enjoy!

Simple citrus fruit cluster together to form
a nice bunch of color.
Sentiment is perfectly understated for this card.
HSS photo sparked the idea to add wood grain texture to suggest that came from a
wooden crate. The colors of the citrus was taken from both pictorial challenges.

Challenges Entered:
Freshly Made Sketches: FMS239
Hand Stamped Sentiments: HSSIC239- Inspiration Challenge
Just Add Ink: Inspiration Challenge

      JAI #314-Inspiration

Here in the USA school is winding down for the kiddo's. Final exams have ended, reports written and presented, and now it is time for them to rest and relax. They had a wonderful year with fantastic teachers who taught them more about the world around us. Also, new friends have been made and phone numbers have been exchanged. Now let Summer adventures begin..

Thank you so much for joining me today and I do hope you enjoyed your stay. Take care everyone and until next time, happy crafting.

All the best,
Shawna
