Lemon, Orange, Pink or Texas Red Grapefruit

Hello All,

For today I am playing along with CAS Colours & Sketches and Twofer, Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge Blogs. Two cards using the same lemon/orange/pink or Texas Red grapefruit stamp (I used to work at a produce store). The cards I am entering are noted at the top of the images. Here are my cards for today, enjoy!
First Card 
(for Twofer, CAS Colours & Sketches, and Color Dare)

The pink backdrop is meant to give the idea of a picnic blanket. I traced the edge of the 'blanket' with a cool gray alcohol marker for a bit of definition. 
Lots and lots of white space make the colors of the blanket and fruit pop off the page.
I thought it didn't need any embellishments. It is crisp, refreshingly bright, and CAS.

Second Card 
(for Twofer Challenge)

 This card reminds me of a night out with friends.
All sorts of fruit go in all sorts of drinks.
Appletini or Oberon beer anyone?
The squares are from a background from years ago. I didn't like the card design but I did like the backdrop. I thought it was fun and funky. So what better way to use it then with such a fun card.
Bright mirror dots bubble up from one of the glasses. The round citrus images compliment the recycled background. 
Challenges Entered:
CAS Colours & Sketches: Challenge #357
Twofer Card Challenge: Challenge #24- Fruit (Both card designs)
I chose Raspberry, Pixie, and Lemonade
 Click Photo for Color Dare #380 "TicTacToe" - Closes Sunday Feb 20th

Thank you so much for stopping by and I do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. I hope you all have a fantastic day and lots of good crafting vibes headed your way.

All the best,

Your citrus slice designs are super, Shawna! Love the lemony yellow and red picnic blanket of your first design and the boot-scootin'-boogie fun of your second drinkie-poo design!! We do need you to enter a photo or collage of both cards together, however. Let me know if you are want to replace your entry photo with a new one of both cards together. Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #24! Hugs, Darnell

Wonderfully bright and cheery cards. Your first reminds me of a fab summer picnic. The fruit slices in the second remind me of drink coasters. Both are fun and fabulous. Thanks for playing along at Twofer Card Challenge #24.
