365 Cards - Day 86 - This will be GRAPE Fun!

I am late posting this tonight as I have started working on my Grandson's Scrapbook today, it has made a nice change to do some scrapbooking as that is one thing I dont do too often. I want to make him a scrapbook for his first year. I plan to take photo's of him every month on the date he was born on so we will be able to see how he developes and changes throughout his first year.

So I am sitting here at 11.35pm posting my card for today's challenge for 365 Cards today which today was 'This will be Grape Fun'

Well you can use grapes on your card, but you don't have to. However, I do challenge you to use purple as the primary color, and incorporate at least 5 circles on your card.

I don't have any fruit themed stamps so I went with the colours and here is my card

I have stamped one of my swirl stamps to make it look like a tree and added 5 purple buttons.

Paper - English Paper Co.
Card from my scrap box
Stamp - Rhonna Farrer
Ribbon and buttons from my stash
Sentiment on my Pc.

Maz, nice take on today's challenge. I know what you mean about the scrapbooking. I have completed one book (40 pages) for my great nephew/grandson (long story) and that was only the first two weeks. I now have all the photos ready for the next 40 page book and I am also putting together a photo/scrapbook that will be all the extra pictures I have of him and right now I think I have about 300. He just turned 2 months old.

I love the shade of purple you used, very pretty. I also like your vine and button embellishment. It is very grape!!!
I still have to get swiss dots. Love them on the purple.
