Raspberry Wishes

     I think this is the first of my spring cards, but it may actually be a card which celebrates summer berries more than spring.  Raspberries are a favorite and the new challenge theme at QKR Stampede this week was a perfect opportunity to use this fabulous Raspberry Label image (Digi 17901.)  Our theme is "Yummy, Yummy" and we want to see you include food on your cards.


I based this on the sketch from Stella Says Sketch
and used colors from The Outlawz 
(Green plus choose 2 from photo - pink & white).

   

     I also used Digi 12407 "Garden Grow" for the sentiment.  The image and sentiment are printed directly onto the card front, making this a one-layer card.  I used my ProMarkers to color the image and to outline the sentiment.  I added the bee, the ribbon, and the handmade flower with a yellow brad for embellishments.  Overall, it's still a very CAS card.  Mmmm, don't I wish those raspberries were growing in my yard right now!
