Green and Orange

Hello blog friends! Once again it's been a while.  I really must pop in here more often! It's not that I haven't been carding, I just haven't been blogging.

This is my latest card which I made using a Cherry Tilda stamp, I changed it slightly by making my own fruit which I stuck over the cherries.  I filled a little glass bottle with beads and 'fruit slices' (nail art from Poundland) to resemble an ice cold fruit juice.  I originally had the little cork stopper in the bottle:

But I felt that it looked a little medicinal, what do you think?

So I changed it for a half pearl and I think it looks better.

I used more 'fruit slices' on the sentiment

Aren't they amazing!! They look good enough to eat!

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm going to enter this card into the following challenges:

Beautiful card Amanda! cute image and fun design. Lovely citrus colours to complement your theme. I like the way you've changed the 'fruit' on the image to suit. The little bottle definitely looks better with the pearl and that nail art fruit is brilliant! Thanks for joining us at Creative Moments.
