Heart Song Challenge - Summertime

Today is Heart Song Challenge.  The theme for today is Summertime (whatever this means to you) AND/OR don't use any patterned paper.  I really wanted to use patterned paper with this image but didn't.  We would love for you to join in and let us know what Summer is to you.  Leah is providing a free digi for anyone who wants to use it.

I chose Leah's Very Cherry Frame for my card.  It can be found here.

Card Recipe:
A2 Card Base
Background paper - Card stock embossed with the Cuttlebug Floral Screen embossing folder
Digital Image - Very Cherry Frame by Leah Cornelius.
Digital Sentiments - Rainbow Echo Designs - Summer Loving Sentiments.  This was a freebie I downloaded so I'm not sure of the website.  You could probably Google it and find it.
Scalloped shape is an image on the Cricut Imagine.  I flood filled it with pink color from the Nursery Tails Imagine Cartridge.  I am totally having a ball playing with this new "toy".
Gem Butterflies
Promarkers used to color image:
Cherries - Red, Berry Red
Blossoms - Pale Pink, Cerise
Leaves - Leaf Green, Forest Green
Frame - Pale Pink

Here is a watermarked view of the image.

Now don't forget to swing by Heart Song Designs and see all the creations the Design Team have created.  There are some really talented ladies in this group.  I'm glad they let me play with them.  Thanks for stopping by today.  Look forward to seeing you tomorrow.  God Bless You!!!!  Peggy
