Oldie but a Goodie Challenge - Fruit or Vegetables

We have a new Oldie but a Goodie Challenge starting today...with a theme of:

'Fruit or Vegetables'

The prize for this challenge is this gorgeous stamp:

After rifling through my stamp collection, I found this sweet Penny Black stamp (from the 'Micey Nice Day' set) featuring a couple of cute mice and a bowl of cherries. The fruity papers are from the 'Farmhouse' pad by Studio Calico...I distressed the edges a little, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Cupcakes' set by Hero Arts.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
I'm also going to link this card up to my lovely bloggy buddy Samantha's birthday candy.

For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Oldie but a Goodie Challenge.
