None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek to contribute your gift to the world. -Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

Feeling Fruity

“When I hear somebody sigh that Life is hard,
I am always tempted to ask, Compared to what?”

Sydney J. Harris

Good morning!
Summer is here with a vengeance! It's has been so hot recently that it is sometimes hard to think of doing anything but trying to stay cool! But this is price we pay for our winters so I don't complain ... much! LOL

Today, over at the Outlawz Challenges, is the start of a new CAS challenge.
We've been asked to make card or projects that show fruits or veggies! It can be your focal point or just part of the scene you create! Just keep in Clean and Simple!

My Card for the challenge
I stamped the image on a piece of watercolor paper, colored with watercolor pencils then spritzed with water. The background layer is a scrap of background paper I had left from another card project.

Supplies
Card stock, Watercolor paper, piercing template, ink and image (Fruit Stand) from Stampin Up!
