Orange you Sweet!

I loved this card at Splitcoaststampers by Jeannie, who said she saw the idea on Pinterest - I immediately thought of using the cute SNSS set Punny Fruits and Veggies along similar lines for a fun CAS card.
The sentiment is so versatile, it could be a thankyou or a card to let someone know you appreciate them!
This is such an easy card - my biggest problem was finding a popsicle stick (or "ice lolly stick" as they're called here) around the house - we used have a lot of them in our box of craft supplies when my boys were small, but those days are no more!  It was a big sacrifice, but I had go get one and eat it so that I could use the stick! : )
I cut a rectanglar shape from cardstock and curved the edges with scissors though you could use a corner rounder as well.  The "bite" is done using the end of a Nesties Scalloped Oval die.
The edges of the popsicle were sponged with orange ink and the little smiling orange was colored with copics and popped up.
I punched a couple of leaves with a Martha Stewart punch and then used a stylus and mat to make them curvy for dimension, with a scored line in the middle.
The bottom of the card is dry embossed with large polka dots leaving the area above the twine smooth for stamping the sentiment.
Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!
