Eat Your Veggies!!!!!

Greetings dear friends: I love my veggies, we do eat them every day but, since our oldest granddaughter Vanessa (19) turned Vegetarian, we've discovered a whole array of new ones and started eating others that we've just seen at the store but never really grabbed to eat.  Like Eggplant.....lovely purple color but it's kind of intimidating just for it's sheer size, then there are the Rutabagas and Turnips.....what's up with this kind of "ugly" roots?? Pumpkins, Butternut Squash, Spaghetti Squash.....well.....they look great for Thanksgiving and Halloween decorations but eat them?? only as Pumpkin pie but I've never eaten the other ones.  
Anywho, our granddaughter has enlighten us about all of these other veggies, roots and leafy greens and we are ever so thankful, I wont say I will turn Vegetarian but the new flavors and ways to cook this delicious bounty are irresistible. 
So here is this card, celebrating this new and healthy way to eat our Veggies.

This yummy image is from a Power Poppy set called Farmers Market, it has the freshest veggie images ever!! Stamped it with Versafine black ink onto water color paper and colored with Sakura Koi water colors, the pattern paper is from Lili of the Valley (discontinued­čś×),the sentiment is from another Power Poppy set called Sage Advice.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

The sentiment and images are from the Sage Advice set.

I'm entering this card onto the following challenges.

Craft for the Craic September Challenge "Autumn Colors"
Daring Cardmakers "Harvest Home" 
Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge #172 "Anything Goes with Ribbon"

I was inspired by the gorgeous colors of the picture.

Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
