Fruity Colors!

The Inkspirational team has given as three bright and fruity colors to play with this week. I started out making the background using a set of hexagonal dies and colorful papers. The REALLY bright look made me want to go "all in" for a cheerful look with a fun image and sentiment from Bugaboo, using the same bright colors to color the image. Her drink contains some cherries, and Stella looks quite "breezy".
I can't say that this card is representative of my style, although I had a fun time putting all the elements together for this card - these colors kind of puts you in a good mood, don't they. I believe it's going to be a birthday card for my aunt - she's got the sense of humor for it.

This card is for these challenges:
1) Inkspirational - #23 Colors
2) Catch The Bug - Anything Goes
3) Fab 'n' Funky - #174 Fruit
4) Crafty Bloggers Network - Bright & Breezy
5) Make it Monday - Anything Goes
