SSIC LOC Fruitful

Sunday comes around so quickly - the weeks just seem to fly by. Sunday brings with it the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge - and this week it is hosted by one of the co-founders, the wonderful Kris.
This week Kris has chosen the scripture:
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control."  Gal. 5:22-23a

Kris has set us the challenge to include FRUIT in your creation (stamp, digi, paper, charms, etc.). **By definition, a pumpkin is a fruit, and so are other "Harvest" produce :)

I have used the Layers of Color Fruitful Harvest and Honeysweet art stamp sets along with the Spellbinders Fancy Tags Three

The bee has been cut out, lightly coloured and has some Kindy Glitz added to the wings.

The background DP has been created using the Crayon Resist Technique - I love how it turned out - so citrus and rich.
