Tart & Tangy

It is funny how you can have a stamp set for so long and then all of a sudden you realize it is actually a nice set to use for simple cards.  This is the stamp set Tart & Tangy and when I was looking through my stamp set to find one that would look good with circles, I saw this one.  Now on to what inspired this stamp set and this card.

First of all, the challenge this week for the Late Night Stampers is to use circles.  The colors to use for this weeks color challenge on Christian Paper Crafts was to use the colors Peach Parfait, Certainly Celery and White.  And, the sketch for this card is from Stamping 411 sketch challenge.  So there you have it!  3 challenges combined in one card and I think it turned out fairly well.

Products used are Stampin' Up!

I have this set and just don't use it. Love this card. Will have to dig out the limes. Great summery look. Barbara

I like the glitz on the limes? Nice simple card and nice to use other colors which I need to do. Thanks for sharing.
