Friday Flashback: Tart & Tangy

Welcome to another Friday Flashback!  Today's stamp set is Tart & Tangy, which is a fun little set with four fruit images.  First up, let's open up the archives (I still giggle at the thought of me having archives):

Lots of polka dots on this one!  I thought that sentiment was pretty cute with the strawberries.

I used Iridescent Ice embossing powder on this one to make the oranges sparkly, and the brads were silver ones colored in with an orange Sharpie.

One year for Father's Day we sent my dad a gift card to Sonic (terribly mean that they sell Sonic gift cards here when there's an entire ocean between me and the closest one), and I made this card because my whole family is utterly addicted to cherry vanilla Cokes at Sonic.

This is one of several similar baby book layouts I did with the apple image from Tart & Tangy, it's always been one of my favorites.

And here's my new card!  It might look black, but the dark color is actually Elegant Eggplant.  Call me crazy, I like orange and purple together (and it was an old SCS color challenge).  The layout is based on the latest sketch at Freshly Made Sketches:

I wasn't quite sure what to make of the sketch when I first saw it, but I like what I came up with.

Thanks for joining me on another Friday Flashback, and have a fabulous weekend!
