Thanks a Melon - The Craft Garden - Color Challenge

It's a bittersweet kind of post as I have a new card for The Craft Garden but it will be the last one over there for a while as the challenge is taking a break. Hopefully it will be back but even if not then it was a short but satisfying journey.
The theme (there is no challenge) for this card is the color combo of Red, Orange, Green and Yellow, perfect for a fruity summer creation don't you think?
