Tasty Grapes

The Sweet Stop sketch challenge has a twist - show a tasty treat.  I have several cake stamps, but in the process of moving things around between the RV and the house, one of my boxes seems to have taken a hike.  However, I find a bunch of grapes a most delectable treat!  I sponged the image with chalk, and should have left well enough alone.  I used a garnet Spica pen to color the grapes - not a good idea.  The Spica ink was a bit too dark, and covered the lines marking the individual grapes.  IRL they do not look too bad, but on the picture it looks more like a blob.  They are nice and sparkly! 
The image is SU Provencal - another favorite set I seldom have occasion to use.  The sentiment is from a set by Recollections.  The DP is by K&Company, and the flower Petaloo.  The pink layer is from the Textile embossing folder (CB).
The Craft Your Passion challenge is to use scraps.  I could pretty well include all of my cards.  Specifically, all layers of the small squares and the sentiment are from my "little scraps" stash. 
Sketch, with the tasty twist:

Such pretty colors on this card. And the grapes look great! I'm sure it's even more lovely in person.
