Tart & Tangy Summer Birthday Card

ANNOUNCEMENT: The Artisan's are at it again!  Come see the 2010-11 Award-winning projects for a 2 week blog hop!  Starts Monday, August 2nd, at 10AM EDT.

Today's card is summer-inspired. I just love summer time and look forward to it so much.  I enjoyed fireworks and fried food for the 4th while celebrating our Independence Day, next weekend I am headed out of town for a little get-away in Wyoming filled with boating, 4-wheeling, and lots of star-gazing.  What's not to love about summer??

This is a card we will be making in our card club this month (contact me if you'd like to come!).  I used two techniques you might like to know about.  The first is called "Rock n' Roll" (don't you love that name for a stampin technique??).  I used that technique to create the duo color combo on the orange slices by first inking my stamp in Daffodil Delight ink, and then rolling the edges of the image in the pumpkin pie ink.  Easy!

The second technique is more of a "cheat".  I didn't have anything but a couple of pumpkin pie ribbon scraps hanging around, so I cheated and used a strip of 1/4" pumpkin pie cardstock and then adhered just the bow on top of that strip.  I'll bet you didn't even notice!  It's a great technique to use to help you use up those cardstock scraps AND ribbon scraps!
