Guest Designer for MarkerPop Challenge #123

Hi, crafty friends!! I am so excited to be in the Markerpop Challenge #123 Summer of Fun as a guest designer!! In this Biweekly Challenge you have to create a 4th of July Themed project that represents Summer. You can visit their blog to see their "June's Summer Fun Prize Pack". Come over and join the fun!!

I'm sharing a fruit/lemonade stand card using lots of  Lawn Fawn products. I stamped the images with Versafine Pigment Ink pad-onyx black. I did a little bit of masking for the fruits and I watercolored them in with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Marker set of 36. Love these markers!!

Lawn Fawn: “Make Lemonade“, “Happy Summer“, “So Smooth” stamp sets “Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables“, “Stitched Scalloped Borders” and “Grassy Border“. 

Update "awning":
1. Diecut a piece of white and green cardstock with “Stitched Scalloped Borders” and cut them in strips.
2. Cut 3 other strips and glue the "scalloped" strips on them, alternating the colors.
3. Then diecut the whole piece with “Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables“.
4. Score the awning on two places (depends how big you want the second part of the awning)

Also I am entering this project in the
