Some Fruit & Anything Goes

Here's my card for this week's Simon Says Stamp "Anything Goes" Challenge. The center was done with a SSS Delicate Dahlia die, and the outside was done with a SB Lotus die. I cut each of them with orange, yellow, & black and interchanged the die cut pieces for a colorful medallion. I added a black brad to the center, and popped up the smaller medallion with foam tape. The sentiment is by SNSS and the background paper is from the Halloween Collection by Teresa Collins.


Next up is a CAS card I made for the CASology #3. Here's this week's cue card for the challenge...

Completely opposite from the detailed work on the first card is this CAS card! I had the stamped image left over from a scrapbook I made, and finally put it to use with this card. The stamp cost a whole dollar at Michaels, and I thought it was cute with the sentiment. I added some yellow brads, a scrap of yellow & white striped paper and a piece of ribbon. I added some black dots around the edge of the dsp to give it a little definition against the white background.
Wishing you a great Friday, and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Another duo of sheer creativity! You do such fun work with replacing the pieces in your dies, and the pears are sweet as can be. I could not have left that stamp behind either.
Happy Friday!
