Another Great Gorgeous Grunge Year - CCMC292

I've got to say, Summer Starfruit is starting to grow on me since its in the free Sale-a-bration paper, which I've been using a lot. When I saw the color combo for this challenge at Create With Connie and Mary, the obvious solution was to use the Sweet Sorbet DSP. But then, just as I was falling asleep last night an idea hit me, so I headed back downstairs to my craft room to make it.

It's simple, but still quite cheerful. I think it'd even work as a guy card. I'm even tempted now to try it in a bunch of different colour combinations since its such an easy card.
