Feeling Fruity

Good morning peeps!
I hope everyone is well today!
As it's the first of July, it's time for a brand new challenge over at
The Crafting Cafe. The theme this month is 
This month, our sponsor is Lacy Sunshine
Who kindly provided images for the DT to use.
Here's my card

The image I have used is the uber cute Winnie Watermelon
you can find her here. The base card is 8x8inches.
The papers I have used are a freebie you can find them here at

I coloured the image with my usual mix of flemarkers & promarkers.
The die I have used is from Xcut. I inked with some Tumbled Glass distress ink.

The doilies are from my stash. The ribbon & buttons came from
a bargain bundle I got at Fantastic Ribbons a while back. 
The button is supposed to be the other way round
but as I liked the speckles on the back, I used it that way!
Thanks for popping in. I hope you can play in this month's challenge.
