More Tart and Tangy

I had my first workshop last Thursday. I was trying to highlight this stamp set and have some examples, so I went looking for some inspiration. I found a card here and changed it up a little, printed the sentiment on the computer and glittered up the edges of the fruit. This is my favorite of these cards.

Then I saw this card and I copied it almost exactly except I embossed the yellow with the vine embossing folder. Then I used green chalks to highlight the vines, but it doesn't really show up. Then I put Crystal Effects on the strawberries, so they are shiny. This sentiment is also computer generated.
But when I was finished, I didn't like it as much as I thought I would so I thought I'd change it up a bit. I kept the layout the same, but changed everything else up. The DSP is retired, and I used Crystal Effects on the cherries again. I like this one much better.
And for this one, I used a sketch (but I can't find the link anymore). Not sure I love the sketch, but I like the curly vine and the popped up strawberry "hat." I'll have to try that strawberry on another card.
And this idea I found here. Makes really cute, really fast thank you cards.
I'm really loving this stamp set and I have a few more projects in the works that I'll be showing soon.
