Grape Card/CDS Color Challenge


I made this card for the CDS Color Challenge over at Paper Craft Planet. Shawne is the host this week and the colors that she chose are: only orangeorchid opulence(medium purple/dark lavender)green galore(lime green)white and/or black neutral.

When I saw the colors I thought Grapes!

So I used 2 different stamps from CDS :Fruity Fun & Just Divine (which I think is being retired).

I stamped the bowl in gold and stamped vines and grapes on it and paper pieced it.

I used my nesties for the white & orange cs. The dp is from Memorybox Butterfield, I don't have a corner rounder so I did the corners by hand. I ran a piece of lime green cs that I had through with my swiss dot embossing folder. The ribbon was actually from Blog Candy that I won from Shawne (thanks again:)) It matched beautifully. I made the grape charm using the same grape stamp I used for the image and added laquer to it and attached with a jump ring, I tied a little piece of green ribbon for the vine.

These colors were so much fun!

That's two people I've seen use that Just Divine set. I have to go look for it in the store. I think I need it! :-) I love your rounded corners. I always forget that and it's such a nice look!
