Happy summertime card

So the weather is still not so summery this morning – bit more summer rain anyone?
But at least I have a summery card to share today.
Which is inspired by the July #18 challenge over at the Making it with Meslyn blog:

“Summer cocktail – recipe – ribbon/sentiment and a splash of citrus”

Here’s my card:

citrus card Makingit with Meslyn #18

No actual citrus fruits were actually harmed during the making of this card but I love all the zesty colours ;)
The main image is stamped from ‘DIY Topiary’ by Flourishes, and coloured with my watercolour pencils. Popped up on plenty of foam pads.
It reminds me of a lemon tree – even though I know it’s roses!

The background layer is a piece of spotty doily – polka dots *and* a doily! Combined! Yay!
Edges are distressed – Distress Ink ‘Tea Dye’.
A scrap of vellum plus ribbon and twine (The Ribbon Girl) then the ticket topper is a journaling card by American Crafts ‘Just Write – Enchanted Tickets’. Cute.

Got to dash then, see you later alligators,
Hugs, Rx
