Fruit Stand

 I actually had a chance to play around with the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge on time this time around. Okay, a word of caution here...this card is way outside my "normal" style. I've seen a few awning style cards around and when I saw the inspiration for this week

my mind went right to the thought that I should try making a fruit stand by creating an awning style card and using Paper Smooches Fruitastic stamp set.

I also drew my color inspiration from the photo...I got a bit off track, but the pinks, reds, and greens were my starting point. I wasn't sure if this card would be a pain if I decided to mail it. Good news is the awning lays down pretty flat and bounces back up when it's pulled out of the envelope.

This is also the first Copic coloring I've done since taking a class on it. In the past I've sort of just winged it, so it was fun to try my hand at doing it the "right way". I've got a lot of work to do, but it was fun!

Thanks for stopping by today!
