Groovy Banana Chips Fairytale

German Phrase of the Day: Das ist gesund. = That's healthy. Julia always asks now if some food she's chosen to eat is healthy. We're trying to make sure she understands that it's best to make healthy food choices, and if you do that regularly, you can treat yourself with something special once in a while. I guess it's working!

I checked the color challenge this morning, and even though Carole was hosting for Emily, and she's the one who picks colors like Orchid Opulance - it was actually a very lovely combination! I had a sketch on my desk from LAST week's sketch challenge (that I never got to) and thought it might work well. Then, I just had to find the right stamp.

I really loved this set from the SU! Occasions mini, but haven't had much opportunity to use it. This sentiment works perfectly for this sketch, and allowed me to do a very elegant card. I'm quite pleased with the end result, and now my only problem is who to give it to??? It's too girly for my husband (although I was thinking of him when I chose the phrase) so perhaps it will make a good anniversary card for someone.

Have a wonderful day!
