FTL151, LIM26 - Feeling Fruity

Time for a new Less is More challenge - and for the first time I made a card on the day the challenge posted!    This particular challenge was to use fruit on a CAS card and my while my selection of fruit stamps is very limited I managed to find an apple in the a muse|studio School Days set that was up for the challenge.
Used a somewhat modified version of the current sketch from Clean and Simple Stamping.  The black gingham paper added the perfect background touch to ground the stack of apples.  The scallop was cut with the middle die from Scallop Border dies set.  School will be starting up in a couple of weeks - I'll be needing teacher cards again and this one is easy to reproduce in a hurry. . .
All supplies used in this card are available in my a muse|studio online shop!
psst - wanna know a secret?   a muse|studio is going to be releasing a supplemental catalog with new stuff including stamp sets, dies, cardstock/ink/ribbon, patterned paper, baker's twine and even felt!!  This 44 page supplemental catalog won't be going live until August 22nd but if you are nice to me and ask pretty please I can e-mail you a .pdf file of it!!  Just e-mail me at msmathey@gmail.com if you want to peek and start your wish list.
