Tilda's getting Fruity!

Morning friends,
It's the start of an awesome new challenge over at Totally Tilda today, but before I launch into telling you all about it I've just got to say how much I was blown away by all the spooky Halloween creations that were made for our last challenge - they were amazing!
Anywho, this time around we would love to see your Tilda's with fruit - this includes fruity embellies, papers and of course Tilda carrying fruit of some kind, in fact as long as we can see fruit and the adorable Tilda on your projects you're good to go!
Well, I had a moment of inspiration and decided to make an apron card. There are so many apron templates out there but I just used a circle nestie to cut away the top two corners of a rectangle of card. I absolutely loved colouring this Strawberry Tilda image, and I'm pleased with how she turned out :)
I'm late with my post this morning because originally this card started out one dimensional and when I got up today I decided to add to it shall we say lol! I just don't do CAS!

I joined my apron pieces with two rings and decorated the inside following the strawberry theme using offcuts of my paper to create a space for a written message (spellbinders nestie labels nine) and a pocket for a recipe or two and/or notes, I just made up a blank Tilda's ticket to pop in there and the fruit label is also a Magnolia stamp.
 I tend to leave my sentiments fairly neutral so that it can be used for any occasion, although the circle sentiments on the nestie shape do say happy birthday.

Couldn't resist a close up of the lovely Tilda :)
