MCT Designer Challenge

Hiya! It's time for another Designer Challenge at MyCreativeTime! This time we have the above photo and color combo to use as inspiration. Here is my card...

I used the Stitched Chunky Jar Dies to create my shaker window. I inked up the lid with soft granite Hero Arts shadow ink. I used the tall font in the Alpha Pack to white heat emboss my greeting on the shaker window. 

I cut the lemons from white cardstock with the Preserves Cricut cartridge. I colored them with squeezed lemonade distress ink, and lemon yellow Hero Arts shadow ink. I used shabby shutters and crushed olive distress inks on the leaves. 

Pop over to MyCreativeTime to see more projects and to play along!
