Papertrey Ink July 2013 Blog Hop: Notecards

Fruits of Summer: Part 2
I love all of the colour schemes in this month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop Challenge - it was a hard decision to pick just one, so I created a second 
project using this inspiration photo:

     I made a set of four square note cards (3 5/8") using Irresistibly Ikat. Once I figured out the design and colour position, these were fast and easy to create. They really do remind me of all the bright citrus colours of oranges, grapefruits, lemons and limes!! 

After stamping the background and sentiment they were impressed with the Canvas Impression Plate. Each card uses one of the sentiments stamped with Orange ink.
