Sweet Summer

I'm a little ashamed to admit that I've had the set Sweet Treats FOREVER and didn't even cut it apart until now. I decided to use it to make a card for several challenges, including the All That Scraps sketch challenge:


And here's my card (you can see that I flipped the sketch so that it would match my image better):


I watercolored the image using a combination of Stampin' Up! reinkers and Peerless Watercolors. The sentiment is from the Summertime Fun set. Here's a close shot of the image:


Other challenges: I hope you like it and TFL!

Other materials used: patterned paper - Basic Grey (Lemonade paper pad); Petite Oval and Petite Scalloped Oval Nestabilities; border punch - Martha Stewart; flower die - Cuttlebug; buttons - Papertrey Ink; Dew Drops.
