Over the past several years of cardmaking, I’ve learned that when there are more interesting challenges than there is time to make cards for each one, that combining can be a good thing.  That’s what I’ve done with today’s card.  The color combo is Dynamic Duos #7, and I’ve included their “dessert option” of adding ribbon to the card.  The layout is the June Sketch for You To Try.  The splashes of bright color against the neutral background fit the current Lawnscaping Challenge.

I used the same watercoloring with reinkers technique I used on last week’s Father’s Day cards to color the flowers.  Otherwise, the card pretty much speaks for itself… so here it is:
