Be fruitful

Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challange #130-was to create a paper-crafted design using the image of fruit, dp with fruit or embellishments with fruit. Now I don't know about the rest of you, but I REALLY had to dig for something with FRUIT! I finally found some DP with fruit on it. Then I had to figure out what to do wiht it! LOL You'd think that would be so easy-ha, not for me. So, as my friend and crafting buddy says-it is what it is! Here's what I finally came up with....

I found a piece of DP that had a border of watermelon, and a border of strawberries. I cut them out and mounted them on a piece of yellow/red dot paper from my scraps and mounted that on a piece of red cardstock both cut out with Spellbinders rectangle dies. I decided to try my hand at adding some stitching-not my best effort-have to work on that some more. I popped the watermelon up with some foam dots. The sentiment is from an ODBD birthday set. I mounted the panel on a card made from green cardstock cut out with Spellbinders for a shaped card. I have to do more of that, too, I really like how it turned out. I added some green ribbon and a bow tied off with a button and some floss from my really, really, really old supply of floss (from when I was first married if you can belive that. And we will have our 36 Anniversary next month!).  A nice summery birthday card. Thanks for looking.
