FCCB Challenge # 170--Fruit Salad

Here is my card for FCCB challenge # 170.  The Theme is Fruit Salad.  Just make anything you choose--card, layout, decor, gift packaging with a fruit theme, and be sure to include at least ONE Cricut cut!

I love strawberries!  Some of my fondest memories are of taking my kids to the U-pick strawberry farm in Wilmington, NC.  And they are so pretty, not just the fruit but the flowers as well.


This adorable strawberry is from Rock Princess, of all cartridges, and to be honest, it doesn't really seem to go with the rest of the cartridge.  BUT, I won't quibble, because I love this cut.  Card base and Nestie cut oval are Poppy Parade,  plain oval is Blushing Bride.  DP is Eat Cake.  I used my Cricut markers to add definition to the cut and popped up my flowers and strawberry with foam tapel  Ribbon is Daffodil Delight taffeta.  I used an SU border punch on the bottom.  This card doesn't have a sentiment on it, but it would make a good birthday or thank-you card I think.

Speaking of fruit salad, the kids and I went to Applebee's (Em's FAVE restaurant) and I got their Summer Berry Salad.  It has spinach, bleu cheese, blueberries, strawberries, pecans and grilled chicken, with some kind of sweet dressing.   Theirs was good, and I thought would be easy to make at home.  Which I did, and it was yummy.  Matt said "Blueberries taste like summer".  Then of course we all had to weigh in with other summery-tasting fruits, the most popular being watermelon, strawberries and cantaloupe.  What is your favorite fruit in the summer?

Thanks for dropping by!  Have a fun-filled day!  Don't forget to play along with FCCB this week!
