  1. Artsy, fun card Nancy! Love the background with the deep rust and embossed circles. Fabulous fruit stamps from one of Dee's new sets. xx

  2. Shaping the fruit makes all the difference and what gorgeous blended colours Nancy x. What a lovely sentiment too x.

  3. Great background and you have achieved wonderful texture on your fruit with watercolour, very clever xx

  4. What a nice sentiment and a pretty card! I especially like your blended background with pierced circles. Cool that you shaped the fruits, too!

  5. Gorgeous fruits! Love the background!

  6. Love the rich colors and die cut circles of this background, Nancy! A beautiful place for the lovely fruit to rest!

  7. fun images Nancy and love those warm summer colours :)

  10. I like your background. I have that die with the circle dots, and have used it already. It looks great on this card--good job.

  11. Beautifully done Nancy, the fruit looks terrific!

  12. Loving that circles cover plate Nancy and how beautiful it looks on that blended background. Always love a fruity motif too and love the way you coloured yours. Hugs, Vicky x

  13. What a fun fruit card, Nancy! The combination of the ink-blending and the circle texture piercing (die-cutting) makes the background interesting and unique. The darker ink-blending worked very well to ground the fruit. I love your watercolored and shaped with stylus fruit! This is a wonderful showcase of the Dee's new release! Hugs.. Hideko

  14. Cute card. Wonderful background. Great job shaping the fruit to give it dimension.
