Simple Fruit Salad - Stampin' Up! Cute Fruit - Paper Players 546

   Summer is the season for all kinds of fresh fruit and berries so The Paper Players have a fun new challenge to start the week!  Joanne has given us the challenge of making a Clean and Simple card using fruit and berries!  

    This wasn't my first card since I read the challenge badge wrong and didn't see that it was a clean and simple week so I had to head back to the stamp room and get something that much more clean and simple than my first attempt!  Not sure how 'clean' this one ended up being but it sure is simple!

  This one starts with a Whisper White thick card base, then a slightly smaller layer of Whisper White with the sentiment embossed in black.

  A strip of the Host reward Pattern Play DSP in a fun geometric pattern lays the base for adding my fruit.  I just stamped and cut out the fruit and then popped them up on the card front with dimensionals.

  I snipped a tiny bit of Polished Pink ribbon and tied it in a knot to add to the banana's stem.

  See didn't I say simple??  I hope you join in on this fun challenge and add your card to the gallery!  For more inspiration see the rest of the Design Team blogs:
