PTI July Blog Hop

 The 25th of the month is one of my favorite days.  Why? It's PTI's Blog Hop.  I get to see so many beautiful cards made by some of the most creative crafters. The challenge this month is awesome.  One is to create a project using one of the Fruits of Summer color schemes. They were all so yummy! Since I was planning on using Delightful Dahlias Additions, I chose this one:

Fruits-of-Summer-5

  I used the smaller dahlia image.



The limeade/new leaf combination was too harsh for me. I still used the two colors for the leaves, but stamped off first on each color creating  lighter shades that seem to complement each other a wee bit better.



  The sentiment is from Mixed Messages stamped onto a tiny tag.  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek. Enjoy the Blog Hop.
