MC Aug/12 - Lemonade - Take Time

One of the challenges called for black & white + 1 color and another for fruit and that's how this card started... It's a one layer card with a bunch of masking, embossing etc. Love the way it turned out.

I also got in a bit of my own calligraphy, although I almost ruined the card with the pen and ink I started to use. Click on card image to see more details and descriptions, and where I made the boo boo.

I'm using what was, I think, intended as an Xmas stamp by  Quietfire Design , but hey... shouldn't we enjoy the delights in every season. Love Lemonade in the summer.

And it fits for these challenges:
By the Cute & Girly  Monthly Aug - something with fruit
Crafty Creations  #181 cool summer treats
The House that Stamps Built  DCC81 Black, white + 1 color
Cute Card Thursday  #228 CAS
Totally Papercrafts  #128  monochrome

How clever to make that sentiment multi-purpose!! I would never think to sponge Black Soot with the yellow but it works. Your lettering coordinates nicely with those corner motifs. A lovely summer card.
