Summer Sweets

     Doesn't this image just make you want to stop for by for dessert?  I remember my mom cooling pies in the window when I was young.  Of course, we didn't have a beautiful window but the pie sure was good.

     This is the third and last entry for the stamp convention this weekend.  This card is entered into the "Slice of Life" category.  I used my new favorite K&Co. paper pad for this card; the colors just seem so very cheerful but somehow old fashioned at the same time.   The edges of each layer are distressed with the matching distress ink and more distress ink was pounced  around the background of the image.  I did my best to match the image colors with the papers, the blue is just a little off but not too much.  The blue flowers have been in the stash for months, I picked them up in the dollar bin at Michaels.  (Am I the only one upset that the $1 bin jumped to $1.50?  I haven't purchased anything from it since that happened. )
