Card with Fruity Wishes

Hello Creative Crafters,

I am out with an another card :). I made this card for one of my friend's daughter. She is 6 months old and truly a cutee pie :). This is for her ceremony called "First Rice Ceremony". [In India its significance is after this ceremony a baby can eat semi-solid & solid foods :)]. Different places, varied ceremonies but with the sole purpose -  Come Together and Enjoy!! Am I right??

So suiting the occasion, I chose food theme :). And for some added fun, I mixed it with different challenges :)).
Here's is my take of the card:
I used a beautiful sketch drawn by Sharon from Truly Scrumptious Challenge 35 - and used the theme "Strawberries and Cream".

Since, the card was to be signed by group of friends say 20 ;), I had to make it really big ;)... I took 2 whole sheets, punch them from top and joined them with a ribbon. The DPs are from Martha Stewart. The beautiful 'peeker' digi is from Bugaboo Stamps and colored it with water-color pencils. I clipped various pictures of fruits and food items and color them with copic & markers. For the 3D effect, I pasted all the pictures first on form sheet and them pasted them with sticky tape. The sentiment is written on a basket shaped cut-out and the woven print is by me with color pencils.
Here is an another look of the card:
and another one :)

And one more from other dimension :)

I am also playing the following challenges with this card:
The ABC Challenge - X for Xtra dimension (the digi and all the fruits)

What a fun card Neeti! Unfortunately it's not eligible for Phindy's Place Challenge as you need to use one of Phindy's lovely images. I do hope you'll enter again and use a Phindy Image.
