Fruit and Flowers

I had an idea for a Christmas present for my Grandma. She likes to send cards, and I thought she might like a box of handmade cards for different occasions so she doesn't have to worry about getting to the store. I told this idea to one of my best friends and he said it was a great idea and he'd like a box for Christmas too! Well, that's two people off my Christmas list.

This is the first card for my Grandma's box. The image is by Fanyella available in the I Did It Creations Store. I won two images from Fanyella at the I Did It Creations Challenge blog.

I colored the image with colored pencils and added some glitter to the flower pot and fruit. The sentiment is from my Everyday Sentiments (It's only $1 at the I Did It Creations Store). I created these printable pages to have sentiments available in my craft room whenever I need them. I was tired of being almost done with cards and not having simple sentiments to put on them. The purple paper is from DCWV's Summer Stack.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
1. Simon Says Stamps - Let's get fruity
2. One Stitch at a Time #22 - Digi Madness

Happy Scrapping!
