Sugar Pea Designs Mix it Up Challenge #13

Are you ready for Sugar Pea Designs Mix it Up Challenge #13? Here you go.

If you're not familiar with the challenge, you can use the sketch or the inspiration
photo on the right, or mix it up and combine the two. That's exactly what I did
for my last card as this month's guest designer.

I chose to use the gorgeous pineapple from Pineapple Paradise which, in my
humble opinion, is one of the prettiest pineapples out there. Using the colors
from the photo, I inked up the fruit with Distress inks and spritzed the stamp
with water before stamping it on watercolor card stock.

After die cutting it with the matching die, I shaded around the fruit and crown
to give it a bit more dimension. I embossed a strip of card stock and adhered it
to the card base. The sentiment was gold embossed and trimmed into a banner.
The pineapple and sentiment strip were then popped up on the card and I added
a bit of bling with a gold thread bow.

Visit the Sugar Pea Designs blog for all the details and deadlines and
join the challenges. The more you enter, the better your chances of winning
up to a $50 SPD gift card!

And a big MAHALO to Lesley and Wendy for having me as a guest this month!
