Feeling Fruity!

I was one of the lucky winners of last week's 'On the Beach' Penny Black Staurday Challenge...yippee! Thankfully the theme is a little easier this week...and they want to see 'Fruit' on our creations. The image I've used is from the 'Micey Nice Day' set...and it goes perfectly with the cherry paper (from the 'Lemonade' pad by BasicGrey)...I did add some Glossy Accents to the cherries...but it doesn't show up too well in this photo. The other paper is from a Paper Cellar pad called (rather unimaginatively!) 'Checks'. I distressed all of the edges with inks, and my distressing tool, and then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen...so I'm also entering this card into Pollycraft's 'In Stitches' challenge. The flowers are by Prima, the ribbon is from Poppicrafts, and the sentiment stamp stamp is from the 'Sending Sunshine' set by Simon Says Stamp.
