Stars & Stamps VCMP Rebel Challenges

I've been playing along with the OWH Stars & Stamps VCMP Rebel weekend, and this card is for challenge #3 to "use a food item on your card" - brought to you by the fabulous Lisa Oliver. I used an older SU! set called Tart & Tangy and made the strawberries using olive and red colors. The sentiment was computer generated and I used a SU! fancy scalloped border punch on the edges.
This card is for challenge #4 which is to "Use bright colors" and is being hosted by Yvonne over on Penguin Papers. I put some scraps to good use on this card, punching with a MS doily punch and simply layering them over top of each other. I added some pretty ribbon and a couple tiny gemstones in the sentiment - both from Pizzazz Aplenty. If you click the photo, you can probably see them a bit better.

I still have to work on challenge#1, but hopefully tomorrow I'll get that card finished. For now, I'm done stamping for this day :)

Have a great Saturday and thanks for stopping by!!

Both cards are so adorable & colorful! Love the first one with the Tart & Tangy set! The punched border and ribbon really make your strawberries pop! The second one is just so colorful with that MS border punch! Nice job on both!!

Carol I had some strawberries last night and they were delicious, just like the look of your card. I love the white dots around the scallops. I always think that makes them pop so nicely. Your second card is very nice. I LOVE the way you did the sentiment. I haven't made a card like this before, but I will try it as soon as I get back to crafting.
Happy Race Day DEGA! my favorite track. Go Tony.

Carol, your cards are really cute! I love those strawberries and that layering with the punched borders is a perfect birthday card and looks just like a little girl's dress.
