It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC73) ! It is the last Tuesday of the month so we have a challenge host. This month's host is Cindy Coutt's. Cindy is giving us a fruit inspired challenge. You can actually create a card with fruits, use fruity colors, or be inspired by fruit shapes. It will be a cool and refreshing sweet treat whichever choice you decide. We look forward to seeing what you create.

This card is also for today's SCS Color Combo Challenge(CC277)!  It is all about Curry Bay Durangos!  Check out the link to find out the dessert option, too!

For my card I am using Flourishes newly release set called Life Lines.  For the fruity challenge I combined some fruity colors, used some fruity shapes, patterns, and textures.  I also, created many layers with a label look for fruit sold in jars.  In addition, I also used a sentiment that better expresses that even fruits have their season to rippen!

 *******************I  edited this section in because I decided to share the time I had with this card with you all!  LOL!  *********************************************

Here are the two cards I made and could not decide if I liked or not.  The first one....I used the Gerber Daisies set stamped onto crushed curry pattern paper in versamark and clear embossed.  I then used some Ranger Tea Dyed to bring out the shape of the flowers a bit.  I used clear cardstock to stamp my sentiment from Life Lines.  After it was done, I really thought it did not look all bad.  However, the focal image did not look like the color challenge colors.  So, I redid it.  
This card uses the same set and same gerber daisies set, but instead of clear embossing I embossed the flower image in white. I then used the same clear panel from the above card. For this one, I did not particularly like the contrast of the white with the ivory cardstock. The contrast is more noticeable IRL.  I thought it was too harsh looking for me. Also, after I took the picture and saw it on the screen, the clear sentiment section looks crooked. It may just be the alignment with the flower, but I went back to my table and redid it again. Hence, the top card was born.


 In all honesty, I do not like any of them.  However, it was too late to continue with the switcheroo game so I went with the last one.   Just sharing with you all that stamping and creating is truly a process.  I probably should have stayed with the first one and left it at that.  Oh, well.  Live and Learn!  LOL! Just curious...which one do you like?  I would like to add that these two cards I used the sketch from Crazy 4 Challenges(C4C43).

  12. 3 beautiful cards as far as I can see Betty! I know the trials we all go through in getting it all just right to our minds eye however. This was a very interesting color challenge!

    just a note: the pink color on your text here is very hard on my eyes and I almost cannot see the orange/peach at all - maybe you could use a darker color???!!
