Feeling Fruity!

My turn to dare at Daring Cardmakers' this week with cards featuring fruit.

We have had abundance of fruit this year and have been busy tucking into homemade crumble, pies and jellies!

I also used Lawn Fawn dies, MME and AC papers and tape and some glitter foam, gems and twine from stash.

I made this for Josh - to celebrate the start of the Football Season  and used a Tattered Lace football die, Baby Fox font and a Lawn Fawn heart die.

thank you balloons

Todays's second card is made loosely with the current inspiration photo at Daring Cardmakers' - (triangle, corrugated and colours), but made mainly with Virginia's brilliant current challenge at Virginia's View - 'Embellishments' in mind;

It simply used Pink Fresh studio paper and a homemade tag style embellishment for the sentiment - the embellishment really is the only thing on the card!
