Have a Grape Day!

It's Memorial Day here in the US, and I am taking the day to work....ah well, I will be grilling with my hubby and daughters later.
For now, I am enjoying working with Regina's wonderful printable images from the Cutting Cafe. I especially love how my Copics work with the images. Today's challenge at 365 Cards is to use purple and at least 5 circles. That's easy to do with the grape image:

I really need to build up my supply of Copics - I was fortunate to have two coordinating purple colors, but only one green :( I'm loving the Atyou Spicas - they add such a nice glittery touch. I tried to get a photo of the image glistening in the sun to give you an idea of how it looks:

I went back over the green glittery spots with my green marker, and oops - strayed outside the line, so the stem is not as I would like it to be, but I'm very pleased with the coloring of the grapes.
I hope you have a GRAPE day, and I'll be back again tomorrow with my take on the next fruity challenge!
