Less is More Challenge

Week 26 of the Less is More challenge is entitled FEELING FRUITY. As I am not in lateral thinking mode, I searched my stamp collection for fruit of any description.  And all I have is the set of Stampin' Up Tart and Tangy stamps.
I chose to make this one very simple......only including one stamp and a sentiment. Additional interest is achieved by matting and layering (Why do I now hate that phrase???) I use a large paper cutter to cut paper and card and it was quite a job to get the measurements correct. I did it " by eye" (Oh no! yet another of those phrases.)

 Feeling that the end result was a bit flat, I stamped the apple again, cut it out and used 3D foam pads to give it "dimension". ( Another word that I cringe when using!)
