The challenge cosmos aligned perfectly this week, with three of my favourite challenge blogs inspiring me to make a tropical card.
Just Add Ink wanted a card with stripes, Curtain Call was a Tasty Tropcis theme, and the Color Throwdown even had a pineapple on it too!
I started off by painting some watercoloured stripes, and adding some paint splatter. The base of the card was also a striped Kraft cardstock.
I still can't find my fruit themed stamp set, so I improvised with a Cricut cut pineapple from Canary, Kraft and Fern cardstock, and I wrote the saying using my Cricut and the pen attachment.
Here you can see the sentiment close up- I am a sucker for a pun and the Sour Apple pen was a great match to the Fern twine and cardstock.
This may be my favourite card of the year so far! The idea came together out of nowhere- usually I have to be inspired by a sketch or someone else, but this card only used the prompts listed above. Now I just have to find someone awesome to give it to!
