Citrus Colours at the Joanna Sheen Challenge

Hello to you all my wonderful crafty friends.
I hope you are having a good weekend. 

Today is the start of a new Joanna Sheen Challenge
This time our theme seems really appropriate for the hot weather we are having here in the UK at the moment:
Citrus Colours

As always the wonderful prize for the lucky winner will be a £15 voucher to spend online at Joanna Sheen.

Well, I did warn you on my last post that this was going to be bright and I'm sure you will agree that it is!!
I was sent some Country Kitchen Rubber Stamps - Cloudy Lemonade.  A fabulous stamp set which includes the main image a smaller image and a recipe. I was also sent some Queen and Co - Self-Adhesive Candy Stripers which I used for the flower centres

Here it is  -  get your sunglasses ready!! Sorry if it gives you a headache!

No one does brights like Doodlebug and you are always my favorite crafter who designs with them! :o) This card is truly special, my friend. The citrusy hues are sweet bursts of sunshine and your card design is fantastic. Marvelous work as always, Sue. This must look absolutely incredible in person! :o) I love it.

Hugs and blessings!
