I've been making cards for both Christmas, Easter and spring lately, and here comes my first summer card!

Over at Twofers there's the theme of organic, with the of clear or rubber stamps only.  Rummaging through my stash of stamps I found this unused one from Panduro which I decided to ink up with red, thinking of yummy cherries, sun and nature, to me those things represent something organic.
For the layout I was inspired by a sketch and I wanted to keep it clean so I emboosed a panel, stitched and just added a stamped sentiment on a banner, it says "happy summer". No embellies, no DPs, just red and white papers and 2 dies used.

This card is for:
Twofers - #15 Organic (clear/rubber stamps only)
CAS on Sunday - #78 Sketch  (I was inspired by the sketch, but it's a bit altered as I memorized it slightly wrong, please delete if inappropriate)
Try It On Tuesday - Nature
