Saturated Canary Challenge #46 "Summer Fruits"

Summer Fruits! This card is for Saturated Canary's Challenge #46 calling for everyone to use "Summer Fruit".  You can find details about this challenge here:
                                                           Saturated Canary Challenge

I used Saturated Canary's "Orchard Love" image and colored her with Spectrum Noir. You can find this cute little image here:
                                                                  Orchard Love

Dress: TB2, TB4, DG2, CR2, CR4, CR5, & IG3.
Hair: TN1, TN2, TN4, & TN6
Skin: FS1, FS3, & FS8

I used a Cricut to cut the scalloped oval (Elegant Edges cartridge) and the flowers & fancy scroll (Accent Essentials cartridge.)  I cut everything out of white card stock and then used Spectrum Noir to color them with the same colors I used on her dress.   Her dress colors were chosen to match the floral paper which is from a My Mind's Eye "On The Bright Side" 6x6 paper pad.

I added some pearls and satin ribbon in baby blue. I also have a strip of a golden organza ribbon under the baby blue. And the little gingham orange-checked border was from Claudine Hellmuth's Home Sweet Home collection. I distressed the edges of everything using Chocolate Brown ink from Craftsmart.

Thank you for stopping by!
