IO Challenge- Colors of Summer

Today's Impression Obsession challenge is all about summer colors.  Since the heat index today was over 100, I decided to go with hot colors such as yellow, orange, and red.  I was a little disappointed when I stamped my saying because I realized that I smudged it a bit.  It should read "It takes a long time to grow an old friend."

To make the card, I colored the background with an assortment of Peerless watercolors and then embossed the tree (Tree F7715) and the saying (Old Friend B5400) in black.

Do you need a bit more summer inspiration?  Check out the other designers:
