Feeling Fruity

Hello, friends!  I made a card today for the current Less Is More challenge...it is Week 26, the fifth week of the month (i.e., 'Lucky Dip' week), and the challenge is:
FEELING FRUITY
(They would like to see fruit or fruit colors on the card...easy peasy 'lemon' squeezy!)
 
My card is rather simple...not very fruity colors, per se, but it follows the color of the apple.  I cut several strips of patterned paper and ribbon, lined them up on an angle, and adhered them to the card before mounting the apple.  I stamped the Hero Arts apple from the Four Apples set with punch chalk ink.  The sentiment is also Hero Arts from the Big All Time Greetings set.  The black gem on the apple is actually very shiny, just hard to tell in this pic.  (Thunderstorms rolling by have darkened my natural light...what timing!)
 
 
As an aside, congratulations to Rosemary for being named the July challenge winner at Less Is More (see THIS post).  Chrissie and Mandi could not have made a better choice...way to go, Rosemary!
 
Have a great day!
Judy
