Go bananas!

This card is another challenge entry, this time the Daring Cardmakers Challenge, and the theme is "feeling fruity". Cory is getting into stamping and in his collection he had this Hero Arts stamp, so I borrowed it while he wasn't looking (he's very possessive of his stash, a feeling I think most of us can relate to!)
I stamped the image with Stazon, and added the branch freehand. They are watercoloured and cut out using nesties, layered on a Core'dinations cs scallop. The challenge being fruit related presented a problem - nothing fruit related! So I found a clip art and made my own backing paper, and the sentiment was also created using MS Word. I decorated the inside of the card using the same papers and font, just to break up the yellow a bit. The sentiment on the front is finished with a 1cm brad, but I can't remember the brand.

Thanks for looking, and let me know what you think :)
