Hi Girl!

This was for yesterday's Sketch Challenge on SCS. I haven't been able to use my Beautiful Blooms set from Papertrey Ink since I got it. I thought I would give it a try with this challenge. These colors are very different for me, but I wanted to try something "fresh, crisp and clean" looking. I usually use my VersaMagic Dewdrop pads with clear stamps, so I went for the Fruit Cocktail set and used Pink Grapefruit, Persimmon and Key Lime. I used Tea Leaves (from a different VersaMagic set) for the darker outlined leaves. I do think this turned out looking like a yummy fruit salad, don't you? :) Thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Beautiful Blooms (Papertrey Ink); Paper- Papertrey White cardstock, DCWV green, melon; Ink- VersaMagic in Pink Grapefruit, Persimmon, Key Lime and Tea Leaves; Accessories- paper piercer, small and large oval punches, scallop circle punch, Cuttlebug Flowers die, ribbon from Michael's $1 bin, flower brads from Oriental Trading.

Wow, I just looked at your blog 5 minutes ago, and this card wasn't on it. I really like it! It turned out really pretty. It does kind of make me want a fruit salad.

the first word that came to mind when your card appeared was "fresh". it's lovely and has so much detail to keep the recipient interested. pink grapefruit is refreshing, with some zing, and that's what this card is too!

how was savannah's first day of preschool?
