Blogger Challenge, Week #15





This week our challenge was to use orange and black in our card/project. I had a hard time not using any other color on my card, so I had to cheat and use a few other colors, really only one primary color (certainly celery). I loved how they came out and I also incorporated the challenge for one of my other groups (layout) in this card as well. Both cards are square cards, the larger is 5.5 x 5.5 and the smaller is 4.25 x 4.25.
Stamp Sets: Fresh Fruits (retired)
Cardstock: Certainly Celery, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Kraft, Very Vanilla, Junkitz Halloween Paperz
Inks: Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Certainly Celery
Accessories: Black Brads
Make sure to check out the right hand side bar on my blog for the other members, there are some awesome cards this week! (not unlike any other week though)

WOW, love these cards. It took me awhile to warm up to the fruit stamps but when I got the hang of them they were discontinued, rats!
