Love, love to paper piece art card, Joan!!! It take me back to cutting the Betsy McCall paper dolls out of the McCall's magazine every month after my mother gave me permission to tear out the page. And I so wanted to do fashion for this challenge, but with Thanksgiving just around the corner, I thought this Art Impressions bowl of fruit would make a great thankful card.
I used 8 different papers for the fruit from old Basic Grey collections, and another one for the old silver compote. The bowl was embossed with Midas Platinum ep. And the just 4 you was done chalkboard style. Love how it pops the whole piece.
Thanks for your comments, I'd love to hear what's your favorite fruit. Mine is whatever is in season! And for now, it's pomegranates.

My favorite fruit is apples, and I love this fashionable fruit in your bowl. Funny you mentioned that Betsy McCall paper doll. I loved paper dolls as well and I guess my life has been an ongoing love affair with paper!!LOL

I love your bowl of fruit Susan!! It looks so vintage and creative - quite a lovely work of art. Great job paper piecing with all of those different papers. I love all fruit - hard to pick a favorite. Watermelon might be a top runner since I don't have it as often as a lot of the rest. I don't think I have ever eaten a pomegranate - don't even know if I know how to. :>)

This is fantastic and Oooooh so pretty, Susan....it looks sooo artsy with the chalkboard sentiment and all the different paper fruits...yummy!!!! I had to smile when I read about the Betsy McCall paper dolls....I, too, couldn't wait for the magazine to come out!! My Mom also bought my sister and me a new book of paper dolls each grocery day and we played with them for hours. Of course, I loved cutting them out best...LOL!!!
