Feeling Fruity ??

Oh my Gosh - here we are - another Thursday and time for this week's Colour Create challenge. This week we'd like you to Feel Fruity by choosing ANY THREE of the following colours; Strawberry, Raspberry, Kiwi, Tangerine and Blackberry.

For this week's extra option we would like to see fruit on your card, either in the image, the papers, ribbon, charms whatever you can come up with.

My choice of colours were Tangerine, Kiwi and Blackberry but somehow I seemed to have thrown a lemon in too (I shall call it very pale tangerine, lol).
I was panicking about this one, I had no fruity papers, no image (or so I thought) with fruit on, then I remembered this Sarah Kay image that the lovely Tara sent as part of my birthday goodies. When I'd finished the card I thought - IDIOT - what about the new summer set of WOJ stamps - they're covered with fruit - too late.

Papers - Download from Digital Scrapbook Art
Image - Sarah Kay coloured with Ranger distress inks
Sentiment - Docrafts
Corner stamp - Basic Grey
Punches - Friskars and Leone Em
Rest from stash

Now I shall have a quick whizz round to try and organize this place before a man from the removal people arrive. I'm not taking all my furniture to Germany so don't need a huge van so he is coming to assess just how much I can put in a smaller one and how many more packing cases I will need. Guess what the majority of the van will be filled with - yep - Crafting Stuff - I was going to get rid of some but find I just cant do it.
It will be the last to be packed and the first to be unpacked - don't anyone tell me they don't understand this - hee-hee!!

Glad I'm not the only one who goes blank and then after you made the card you realise all the stuff you could have used.

Hi Heather!
Hope you are well, hear you're moving! How exciting to be closer to family! Sounds wonderful, but that packing and moving does not!
I hope all goes well and smooth!
Your card is lovely, of course! When I saw it over on the challenge blog, I thought, only Heather can take fruit and turn out such an elegant card! lol You never disappoint, even in the throws of moving!
Sending Peace & blessings your way!

Heather, this card is so beautiful! I love the pretty papers and your layout. It was also like deja vu -- I just posted a similar image here and it shows how different media produce such wonderful effects. Your coloring with the distress inks is amazing!!
