Tart & Tangy Thursday

DSCF4268

My fellow CTD team member Broni had a color challenge yesterday on the Rubbernecker blog, so I thought I would give it a shot.  The corresponding SU colors were Old Olive, Summer Sun and Pumpkin Pie, and since I am on a "fruit" roll (see my watermelon card here) in my cardmaking, I thought I would use Tart & Tangy for a sweet little card:

I used my new long rectangle Nestabilities to cut a scalloped card, added some Haiku paper and my citrus accents!  My yellow ribbon was not quite "summery" enough to match my corduroy brad, so I intensified it a bit by coloring it with my Summer Sun marker.

While I had the set out, I kept going with the fruit theme and made a spinner card with the apple image; this will be a sample for my upcoming club night:

See it spinning?  LOL!!!  And finally, I think this is the first time I've inked up this cherry!  I am using up my soon-to-be-retired In Color stuff:

AAACKKK!  Look at that big bow!!! Yikes!  Deep breath...I will have to hand-deliver this card as it will never fit into an envelope!!  Well, thanks for sharing with me today!

Fabulous in triplicate today LeAnne! I love this tart and tangy set, and yet I never quite know how to use it, so it sits and collects dust *sigh* These cards are all so bright and cheerful, and I LOVE that big honkin' bow!! :)
