Summer Bliss with a Slice of Orange

It's time for the 2nd challenge with "Challenges by AR". In case you are not familiar, AR Creations is an awesome template store by the fabulous Adela. She has recently started a challenge blog for her amazing templates. Every few weeks a new challenge is posted and you will have a chance to win a prize! Come play with us in 3D! Swing on by CHALLENGES BY AR for all the details!

This week our host Lyn has challenged us to create a summer 3D project using this theme: "Summer Bliss with a Slice of Orange". Doesn't that just sound relaxing?

I used Creations by AR's template called Tray Chic. I paired it with a matching card using {ippity} Stamps.

Here are some close ups:

This tray is the cutest thing ever. So I have to cut out all my templates by hand because I don't have the software to do that. So forgive the black lines in this creation but in real life you can hardly see them, it's adorable!! Check out the pom poms! That is a "ribbon" from Stampin Up which I just adore! My pattern paper is actually old and I believe from the Target dollar spot a few years ago, if you can believe that! The flowers are paper ones from Prima. I used some shredded paper inside and put some candles in. I thought of this because I have a Partylite candle tray like this so I thought this tray would love cute with candles in it.

Here is a close up of my card using the {ippity} kit called: New Season, New Wonder. I was going for a different look with this card. So I used some mulberry papers underneath, added the pom poms to match the tray. I stamped the orange slices using a few colors of Memento Dew Drops and then added stardust stickles to it for the glitzy shine. It reminds me of those sugar coated fruity slices. In the background I stamped the orange image using Faber Castell gelatos and water!

Well that's all for now! Be sure to swing on by the Challenges by AR blog for all the challenge details on how you can play along and you don't want to miss what the design team cooked up! Go ahead and leave them all some love!

Till later!
