Fresh Fruit For Sale!

I am just lovin' the Pile It On Challenge (doing multiple challenges in one project!) It really does actually challenge me to get out there and do something I would not have ever thought of! Here is the list of challenges I completed with this Recipe Card:

Pile it On -- Purple

My own Scrap or Dare #8 -- Color Combo

Card Patterns -- Sketch

Stamp Simply -- Summer Recipe Card

Cardvaarks --Window Card

2 Red Bananas -- Summer Inspiration

SUMMER INSPIRATION: Other than papercrafting, my next favorite thing to do is bake and try new recipes. Summertime brings along a ton of fresh opportunities to find and try new recipes using fresh and delicious fruits! Point Loma Sangria is so refreshing, delicious and just perfect for a nice chill during the Summertime heat. I hope you enjoy the recipe if you ever try it out. I posted this recipe awhile back so you can find the recipe and a photo HERE.

Now as for the Recipe for this Card:


Papertrey Ink -- Fruitful
CTMH -- Playful Flourishes; Journal Jots; Spot On Background

Embellishments: CTMH Clear Sparkles, Meadow Green Bigger Brad and Sweet Leaf Ribbon

For the window over the title, I recycled a clear sheet that I got my new Papertrey Ink stamps on and I used foam squares to pop up the center of the card so that the window would be seen clearly. It was important to me to use my own handwriting for the recipe and title because I love looking back at my recipes from my mom or grandma and seeing their very own handwriting. It gives it that authentic and loving touch! This recipe card turned out so cute, I may just have to duplicate it to send out to some special friends :)
