Show Us The Citrus, Teddy Bear!

Hello, everyone! I sure hope you are all enjoying the winding down of summer!  Can you believe the kids are back to school in many areas?!  Before you know it, Fall will be here!  Of course, I'm not quite ready for Fall, yet, though, and neither are the the folks at Shelly's Images!  We have a fun new challenge for you, this time - We have this gorgeous color combo for you to use to create your projects this week!

Have a looksie at this fun color combo:

Doesn't it look yummy?! Lots of Citrus and summer colors!  Perfect for the hot days and winding down of summer!  I hope you're inspired, already and will come over and play along with us in our color challenge, at Shelly's Images!

Need more inspiration?! How about checking out my card made for this color theme this week!

My card, today, features the image, Beary Smart, from Shelly's Images, colored with Promarkers. I went with a black and red color combo and added splashes of the citrus colors from the color theme for this week's challenge. The card layout uses the sketch at Seems A Little Sketchy. The flowers are made from felt and are from my stash.  I used black pearls to embellish and to make the flower centers.

This is the perfect back to school card! Great for a student or teacher!
