Simply the Best

All stamps on this card are from the Hero clear set "Simply the best".

The fruit was stamped on different colors of card stock and the leaves and the watermelon rind were cut and layered. The fruit looked flat and I wanted to try and give it a fresh look, so I sprayed it with glimmer mists and memory mists. Added some dimension with glossy accents and a little added color with copic markers.
The idea for the piercing came from Joan Ervin's blog. I thought the piercing added so much balance to her card and was the perfect accent. If you haven't visited her blog before be sure to check it out.

I also wanted to thank Jill Foster, and let her know how honored I am that she is featuring me on her Blog this week. Go check out the great card she made today.
Thank you Jill!!

Hope your week is "Simply the Best!"
Thanks for sharing some time with me :)
