Fruit Borders

     It's finally here -- the new 5-day-long release from MHK Designs!  Be sure to check out the MHK Designs blog to see all the new sets, starting with yesterday's post.

     Today we're celebrating the "Fruit Borders" set and I love the images as well as the sentiments in this one.  I've done a card using the Lemons but there is also an image with lovely pears which I'll use as soon as possible.  :-D  I'll add a photo of the set at the bottom of this post.


     I colored with a combination of chalks and ProMarkers and then die cut the image.  The die cuts are Cheery Lynn, including the one on the sentiment.  The purple background paper is also from a digital paper set by MHK Designs called "Snowy Season."   The ribbon is one of my favorites from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Can you tell that I love purple?  And my favorite color combo is purple and anything!  Ok, ok, purple and yellow go so well together that I tend to use that combo a lot.
