Fruit Salad Birthday Card


I just received this new stamp set (Fruit Salad by Create A Smile) and wanted to play a bit.  I saw that The Paper Players Blog was having a color challenge so I selected those four colors as my inspiration.  Paper Players Card Challenge

 I embossed 5 of the fruit images and then watercolored them with Tombow markers.  I thought the card panel was missing something, so I used distress ink to make a coordinating edge on a scrap of cardstock.  Next I embossed a birthday sentiment on black cardstock and trimmed one edge at an angle.  I assembled  the card and it is ready to send to a girlfriend who has a June birthday.

The stamps are from a set called Fruit Salad by Create a Smile.
The sentiment comes from a favorite set called Big Greetings from Simon Says Stamp.


Thanks for stopping by!
