Apple Basket

Did you see the announcement on Gina's blog last night?!!!!! I am extremely honored and excited!!!!! Thank you so much Gina!!!!!!! I made this card for Nina's color challenge on Stamp TV, any color red, chocolate, white or cream and soft sand or kraft (I used kraft since I don't have soft sand yet *wink*). My sketch is for this weeks Crazy for Challenges challenge, what a fun sketch, thanks Cindy!!! I decided to use my Whimsical Autumn set, love this set!!! I colored the image using my Prismacolor Pencils, Gamsol and blending stumps. I sponged the outside of the image while it was still in the die and then colored over the apples with my Versamark Pen and embossed with clear embossing powder. I then poked holes in the basket where there were little dots and stitched with Rustic Cream Button Twine. I should have done that after I embossed, oh well, live and learn right?! I also got the idea I should have popped up the apples afterward too, lol!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
