Create a Smile Fruit Salad Card

I was invited to be a guest designer for the next Create a Smile Challenge so I've been  busy playing with their fun summery stamp set, Fruit Salad. Summer is my favorite season and I love bright bold colors which work perfectly with this stamp set.

Handmade card

I started by embossing 5 of the fruit stamps plus the sentiment on white card stock.  Next, I colored the images with Copic markers.  I love how bright and lively they turned out.  I wanted the sentiment to be vibrant and summery as well so I selected SSS Big Greetings so that I could color Happy Birthday.  Next I trimmed the card down and mounted on a black card so the embossing would really pop.


I am linking this card to the following challenges:
CAS on Friday Embossing Challenge
Dare2BArtsy Bright Colors

Update:  I was so excited to learn that I won the Dare2BArtzy Bold Colors Challenge (Winners Page)  They offer a beautiful prize of one stamp set and one ink pad.  I chose their whimsical Home Sweet Home Stamp set and Blue Sky Ink Pad.

Thanks for stopping by!
