Fresh Fruit Thank You

  First off I want to apologize for the poor quality of this picture.  Over the last several weeks our camera has been slowly dying and this is one of the last photos I took with it before it went kaput.  This card had to be mailed out so I can't take a better picture with the new camera that arrived today.  Hopefully future photos will be improved (at least once I learn how to use our new darling!).

  I borrowed the color combination from the Idea Book & Catalog and was going for a fresh fun summer look.  I think Wild Wasabi is fast becoming one of my new favorites.  When it was first introduced as an In Color several years ago I was just a customer and still focusing on acquiring all the colors from the 4 color families so I didn't pay much attention to Wild Wasabi or any of the other In Colors.  Now I am certainly paying attention to it!

  The Wild Wasabi base was run through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.  I layered 4 Whisper White scalloped squares on top and then added my fruit.  For the fruit I stamped them on the colored cardstock with Versamark and then embossed using clear embossing powder.  I cut out the fruit and adhered them to the squares.

  I finally got around to using one of my new buttons from the Brights collection.  I tied a bow through the button with some white embroidery floss (non-SU) and layered it on top of a strip of Melon Mambo faux rickrack made with the scallop edge punch.  I've found that a glue dot on the back holds it on pretty well.

  Thanks for looking! Happy Stamping!
