Pineapple Friend

Hello Crafty Friends,

For today I am playing along with Just Us Girls and Fusion. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

I really do like the cheery and bright nature of this card.
Especially the watercolored pineapple 
that was done using a Dreamweaver stencil (below).

Above: I complied with only the sketch for Fusion but I completely plan to do a glamping card!! So funny!! The colors on this card are bright and cheery perfect for my friend who adores pineapples! Left/Below: The pineapple is actually lightly embossed and then watercolored with an aqua pen. Right/Bottom: I tried to scale down the pineapple by fussy cutting it which left room for the luster pink circle and white flowers.

Challenges Entered: 


The pineapple is known to symbolize hospitality. This particularly true in the southern United States. It can be seen on door knockers, planters, or around entrances where guests would enter. So why the pineapple? Back in colonial days, it was very hard to acquire. Only affluent hosts could afford to offer it to their guests, so the fruit became a symbol of generosity, hospitality and, of course, wealth.

Well, that should do it for me!! Thank you so much for stopping by and do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. We will see you soon. Take care and happy stamping.

All the best, 

Shawna
