I used SU Card stock in Real Red, Only Orange, Green Galore, Yo Yo Yellow, and Whisper White. I used my SU Markers in the Above Colors and added on Glorious Green, and Close to Co Co for the Fruit stems and greens. That little Orange Slice can be used for an orange, lemon, or lime as you can see two of them above. The Stamp set is a current SU set Tart and Tangy. What I do find disappointing is the fact that my very bright sparkly glitter strips look very dull and not sparkly. :-( I did Split Coast Stampers Monday Technique Challenge to take your Sticky Strip and put it on paper and make Glitter Stripes on your paper. It is a very cool technique and the cards in the gallery sparkled and shined (not a word?) so cool! I think part of the reason my colors do not stand out so much is the photo takes something away from it, but also the green makes the bright Orange glitter, and bright Yellow glitter more subdued in color.Here is my Sentiment I hand wrote it onto a stamped lemon slice.

A Birthday Card - Using Madelynn's Twinkling Tuesdays Sketch
Happy Fruity Birthday to You
Well I made this card finally for Madelynn's Twinkling Tuesday's Sketch and I feel awful that it took me 3 days to get it done, but as I said before 2 other cards I started to make for Madelynn's Sketch ended up morphing into something else so this one from the start had no other option but to be for the Sketch!!! LOL
Above is the Sketch, You have probably heard me talk about it before, but Madelynn, is an 8 year old little girl and this is her 4th Sketch Challenge. She even has her own Group over on Paper Craft Planet now so cool. I think it is fun to do something inspired by the creativity of children so this will be a sketch I want to do every week! I have had this cute fruit set for a long time now and it has never seen ink, so today was it's Debut in my Stamp room!
Each Fruit stamp and the orange layer and the sentiment are all popped up from the other layers. I took my kitchen knife and distressed the edge of the Orange Layer and the yellow layer and I cuttled the Green layer with my dots and circles CB folder and my big shot. I really should by one of those distressing tools but those kitchen knifes really come in handy!!!
Well I guess that is all for today I hope you enjoy the Bright Card it is much brighter in person even!!! Great for Birthday Greetings I guess!
Have a Great Night!
