Fruity Birthday Challenge!

Welcome back to the next Flourishes Challenge!!!  This one is hosted by Dee who has challenged us to create a Fruity Birthday card or project!  Now when I first heard about this one, I thought - what am I going to do, I don't have any fruit stamps!!!  Then I thought why not use All Wrapped Up and some fruit paper!!!  Play along, there are prizes up for grabs!!!!  When you've made your project link your post to Mr Linky on the Flourishes Blog and if you upload to SCS, add the keyword FTTC52C!

I started with some dark pink bazzill and layered with light pink bazzill and white embossed with Swiss Dots.  I then took a strip of dark pink and punched both sides with the Martha Stewart Loop Punch and topped with a strip of cherry paper which is all glittery by DCWV.  I took the large present from All Wrapped Up and stamped it twice in Memento Tuxedo Black, once on white (colouring the bow and centre strip) and once on the cherry DP.  I then paper pieced the present and cut it out and popped it up on circles of light and dark pink bazzill and some pink satin ribbon.  To finish I added the sentiment from the same set to the top of the paper strip and some pink Kaisercraft rhinestones to the corner and ribbon.

Stamps - All Wrapped Up (Flourishes)
Paper - Dk Pink, Lt Pink, White, DCWV DP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Small and Large Circle Nestabilities, Martha Stewart Loop Punch, Swiss Dots EF, Pink Satin Ribbon, Pink Kaisercraft Rhinestones, Scissors, Foam Tape.

There's more challenges coming so pop back soon!!!  :)

Cute as can be.I love how you carried the circle theme through the card Polka dot background, swirls in the border and a circle under the present.

What a clever approach to this challenge. I may have to do the same with fruit paper! Thank you for the inspiration!

You got around the "no fruit stamp" problem very well. Very pretty card.

When I first saw your card with the Fruit Challenge in mind, I saw 'watermelon' (even if that wasn't your intention. This is a great card.

How dainty and pretty! I was thinking fruit colours, but now I have another idea that might be *fruitful* for me thanks to you.

stampqueen said...

Great idea - your colors are fruitful too - the green looks kiwi ish and the pink for berries.
Cute card!!
