Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Being a brand new month it is  time to introduce our new hostess which is Maryann Einam.

Maryann asks us "Who can resist fresh fruit when it is in season" for Maryann she loves strawberries. So for our challenge this week we were to add our favorite fruit to our card.

My favorite fruit has to be cherries, which should be hitting the shelves down here in Australia any time now! These days we are lucky enough to be able to purchase cherries when they are in season down here in Australia and we also get them available in stores when they are in season in California! Yum!!!!!

For my card I pulled out the Hanging Charm Pull Tab die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. I used the Stage It Stencil Cherries Layering to create the background of the card, love how easy it is to create those cherries on a card.

To decorate my card I used the Cherries Peel Off Stickers from Elizabeth Craft Designs. I adhered Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape to the front of a piece of white card and then placed the peel off stickers onto the adhesive and covered the adhesive with Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. I then colored the glitter using Copic markers.

The "pull" on the top of the pull tab is from the Steampunk Clear Stamps also designed by Karen Burniston.

With this style of card you have the option of either adhering the card to a folded card or keeping it flat and adding the sentiment panel on the back. I like to keep mine flat so that whoever receives the card knows to display the card flat.

On the left hand side of the card I added more stencilled cherries. I added two sentiments from the General Sentiments Clear Stamp set and a couple of spare cherries from the Peel Off Sticker sheet.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.
