Basket Full Of Apples


Hi everyone!  This beautiful basket full of apples is a digital image from the Harvest Crow stamp set at Artful Inkables.  It is not the typical thanksgiving card but is really adorable so I'm going to send it to someone in the family for the upcoming thanksgiving holiday!


My card base is Chocolate Chip layered with Neenah Classic Crest then Old Olive embossed using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder.  The shadow layer is Real Red on Chocolate Chip.  The image was printed on Neenah Classic Crest and colored in using copic markers.  I paper pierced around the edges then layered on to Chocolate Chip.  To embellish the card I added a bow finished with a button threaded with DMC White.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
