Flourishes - Timeless Tuesday #164

Mona, at Flourishes, has asked that the challenge this week be to "use a fruit theme"!

Absolutley nothing says Spring like fresh fruit, fruit trees, fruit everywhere!

After the week of card kit cutting and re-organizing my room and cleaning the rest of the house, my right thumb just was NOT up to coloring an image (at least, not doing a very good job of it)

I think the simplicity of using this stamp with brown embossing powder was enough to set off the beautiful details of the designers artwork.

The sentiment was stamped and decorated with three little golden marquis shaped rhinestones to resemble seeds!
The butterfly was graced with a gold bling head himself!

Loveliness in it's simplicity.
Somethimes the best way to see the beautiful detail in these stamps is to stamp them and leave them coloring.

I think this card is a good example.
Thanks, Flourish, for this challenge!
