Fruit/ Drink and/ or Colors for House of Cards

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

I'm incredibly honored to be beginning my third term on the House of Cards Design Team and now proudly display the updated DT badge in my sidebar in addition to last year's.

The challenge this month is to use fruit/ drink and/ or the colors in the inspiration image...

For my card I've CASEd the image using some great new products from Stampin' Up!

The Fresh Fruit stamp set was the first thing that caught my eye as I flicked through the new catalog, so the moment I saw the challenge pic I knew which project would be its debut. :)

Card: Emerald Envy, whisper white (base layer), and shimmery white (all design elements)
Ink: So Saffron and Pear Pizzazz, and the same Stampin' Write markers to color the edge of the lemon and cucumber
Stamp sets: Fresh Fruit
Tools and embellishments: Swirly Scribbles Thinlits and clear Wink of Stella
Adhesives: Tombow

While we've sadly said goodbye to a few members of the DT, including coordinator Sue, there's still lots of amazing ladies to inspire you. Please do hop around and see what they have created this month...
