It's time for Kerry's 3Clover Thursday challenge and this week our theme is: Fruity Tutty (must have fruit on your card/project). I sort of "cheated" a little since I already had this card finished as it was originally going to be my card for the (Where I Live) challenge found here: but I went with a different card and since this one has fruit on it I'm using it for this weeks theme and also as an on-going part of my own (Where I Live) theme. Walla Walla is fast becoming a (Napa Valley) type region. We now have nearly 100 Wineries in the area so you can see why I have used grapes for this card. The image is from an old retired SU set, (Sun-Ripened II) that I love and never plan to get rid of. I colored the grapes with Prisma Colored Pencils blended with Gamsol. Then I spritzed on some Bravo Burgundy ink and added some Dew Drops (Grapes and Leaves collection). The card base is Bravo Burgundy layered with Always Artichoke. I stamped the retired SU, (Weathered) background stamp with AA ink on the top portion and layered a piece of DP (DCWV) that I had in my stash that I thought went perfect with the grape image along with some ribbon (retired SU Prep School). I added a panel of BB behind the image that was embossed with the Distressed Stripes embossing folder. The sentiment was stamped with a combination of Bravo Burgundy and Always Artichoke, highlighted with piercing and layered on a large oval and then a scalloped oval. I added another piece of the Prep School Ribbon tied with some Linen Thread to complete the card.
