StampNation Challenge and Cards (with a Word Die)

Hello, it's time to share another challenge over StampNation. 
This week we are having a Fruits & Veggies theme:
"Mama always says to eat your fruits and veggies. Why not use them on your paper crafting projects too?! "
Aren't these yummy? They are a sample of the DT's work.


(Use fruit, veggies OR both)
Here is s sneak peek of what I created. Our sponsor is Ellen Hutson and they have offered us to use "Craft-a-Board" to create this project.

If you would like more information about this, Click Here for StampNation Details. Beginning  next week, I will be starting a new session of "Virginia's Stamping Clinic" (exclusive to StampNation). I will be sharing examples and tips as to how to do a "Constructive Makeover" to your stamped images. If you are interested in this feature, you can sign up to become a monthly member of StampNation (you can do it as a monthly basis). The sign-up details are here.

Of course, I am not leaving you without a card today. I used the Score-a-Board to create a colorful word die ( Lawn Fawn's Scripty Thanks) by coloring it with Gelato and Glossy Accent. Then I decided to make a few die cuts and used the negative parts for the design. 

thanks
The trickiest part was to save and use the tiny little leftover dots from the die. I just love how flat and smooth this card is.
I am entering this card for the Word Die Challenge over Moxie Fab World.
   
Hope you have a fabulous summery day!

I am so very impressed with this card - the background with the many thanks is so perfect and then the addition of that gorgeously colored rainbow thanks kicks it up several notches!! The sequins are a lovely addition!! All the way around, an amazing card!!
