Summer Fruits...

It's a glorious sunny day here today so what could be better than the Less is More challenge this week of Feeling Fruity.  Sadly I do not own any fruity stash, no stamps or suitable papers so I have had to go along with a fruity colour on my card.  I chose Zesty Lime as I think it works really well with white.




I made the flower using Sasha's little tutorial HERE I just used plain organza 25mm ribbon from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop, and finished it off with a large lime coloured brad. Stamps used were Waltzing Mouse Holiday labels 14 and Fancy phrases in a lovely green ink and just a tiny bit of bling to finish off with, I think it needed this to balance the card out.

I wanted to say what a lovely group of crafters take part in the LIM challenges, so friendly and so many making an effort to leave lovely comments, Thank you to everyone who took the time to visit my blog last week, I really appreciate it .

I am hoping a friend of mine will join in with the challenge this week, I know she loves visiting the LIM blog and she really makes the most stunning CAS cards (you know who you are Miss Pitstop!!) Fingers crossed her blog will come out of retirement.

Thanks again for visiting
