Fall Apples

Happy Thursday, everyone! Around here we have been blessed with some gorgeous fall weather lately. Fall is my favorite time of year -- the colors, the smells, the cool temperatures -- I love it all! :) When I saw this new Flourishes set Apple of my Eye at Stamper's Dream, I knew I had to have it. I combined it with Crate Paper's Restoration paper to make a fall card.


This card is 5.5" square to accommodate the large image. I stamped the image and sentiment in Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored with Copics. I added some Diamond Stickles to the flower centers. The edges were sponged with Antique Linen Distress Ink. I wove some twill through the crochet ribbon and topped it with a Cappuccino Button and Ivory Burlap String.

That's all for today! I'm so glad you stopped to visit!

Have a great day!
Christina
