  14. Wow! I am so impressed by this card! You managed to somehow combine the 4th of July with fruit and make it work! That takes som skill, which you obviously have. I really like how you created the look of a flag on the side, added that great rustic piece of twine, and then had the adorable fruit image as your focal point. This was all the best things of summer rolled into one amazing card! Thanks so much for sharing it with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
