D2D July Artist's Challenge {#2} Vino

I finally finished my entry for the Designed2Delight Artist's Challenge this week!
I had a serious issue with choosing a color combo for this image, as many of you read in the D2D group at Crafter's Digital Art Center. (so funny!) So, this morning I was reading through everyones comments there, and scoping out what everyone else had come up with, and my eye happened to catch the discussion 'Delightful Color Inspiration' and I remembered that I had not made a card to participate in that yet!! And thank goodness there was no deadline, right? So bam, got my colors.

The whole time I was painting this image, the country song 'Toes in the Water' was playing in my head. I do not know the name of the singer, but I love that song, so I thought 'Life is good today' was an appropriate sentiment to add to my card. I typed it out on the computer here, and added it to my card front!

Oh, and did I mention that I used embossing, there on the card? That is for the Double Delight Challenge! Fun, fun!

Thanks for taking a look-see! Happy summer!
