A Strip of Summer

With help from the OneLayerSimplicity challenge (strip down!) and the 
Less is More colour cue (berry shades), I created this card on this very hot Summer Friday in Austin!
An old, but cherished, SU berry branch was my inspiration for the berry image. I don't think these are really blueberries...but let's pretend for today!  I stencilled my watercolour on WC paper over my masked berry image.  It was a tricky one to cut out, and finished with some speckles from my paintbrush.  Have not decided on a sentiment yet...but another for the stash!

Thanks for peeking in today and I hope that you have a great start to your weekend!
