Feelin' Fruity

Hello all!  Here are 2 cards I made with the stamp set, Feelin' Fruity!
The images were stamped in Black Memento and colored with Copic markers.  I added some teeny weeny brads (coming to MFT soon) to the bows and stems on the fruit and matted them with a Circle Cut-out Mat in Black Chipboard available HERE.  I used my bow maker thingy that I bought HERE to make the bow.
I toyed with adding a sentiment to the front of the card, but it wasn't working out, so I decorated the inside. :)
I just love the sentiment: friendship is organically grown
Here is a close-up peek at those cute little faces:
This card was made for a challenge issued by my friend, Michele, on SCS for the Ways to Use it Weekly Challenge.  She is a guest host today for Julia Stainton.  Also participating today is the super-fab Susan!  The challenge can be found in THIS forum (look for the most recent date).  It is to use two of something! 
I decided to use 2 of the cute little apples.  I paper pieced them using some PTI patterned paper.  The layout is from Lauren Meader (not sure which sketch number it is).  :)  With these cute little faces, I think less is more... so I kept the embellishments to a minimum (well... I don't know if anyone considers 10 brads and two types of ribbon a MINIMUM, but it is simplistic LOL).
I hope you'll hop on over to the challenge and give it a shot... or TWO. *wink*
Paper: red, black, white, PTI patterned paper
Accessories: ribbon, brads, black circle cut-out mat, red line dimensionals, Copic markers, Janome sew mini, ric rac ribbon, teeny weeny brads
